Tonight at 6:30 p.m. StoryCorps founder Dave Isay kick starts the new "9/11, Today and Tomorrow" speakers series at the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site. The entire speakers series can be viewed in HD online at THIRTEEN Forum and downloaded for free at Apple's iTunes a week after each presentation.
Other planned events in the series includes a presentation next month on April 28 that will examine a complex issue - trying terror suspects in civilian courts versus military tribunals. UPDATE: Next month's panel includes noted author Karen Greenberg, who is the executive director of NYU's Center on Law and Security. Greenberg has studied data on trials of terror suspects since 9/11. You can RSVP for this event, which is entitled 9/11 and Trials of Terror, as well as other events by clicking here.
StoryCorps began operating a recording booth in lower Manhattan in 2005. In a collaboration with the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the nonprofit is working to collect family histories, memories and 9/11 related stories. Visit Storycorps.org for more about the not-for-profit group.
