Phonographic Memory at the Temescal Branch Library

Phonographic Memory at the Temescal Branch Library

The storytelling project Phonographic Memory brings neighbors together to listen to personal stories inspired by vinyl records. Since 2015, the project has collected over 75 stories and songs shared by people around the Bay Area through its free, monthly live events, and showcases them through its podcast and video series. The project has now come to the Temescal District.
