Audio Shelfie is a digital storytelling project that gives readers a space to tell stories about the roles books play in their lives. The hosts pose questions about reading and collect stories from participants that are then paired with a photo of the storyteller to create an "audio shelfie." This live session is an “Audio Shelfie” mini-storytelling festival. To prepare for the session, we’re asking readers to think and write about this question: “What is the most meaningful reading experience of your life?” During the session, host Mary Mahoney will also play some recorded stories from the Audio Shelfie site in which readers address the same question. Those present who want to share their own stories will be invited to do so for the audience, and have their stories recorded to be part of our digital storytelling project. Whether you want to share your story or just listen to others’, meet other readers at this celebration of the place of books in our lives.
