New Speakers Series debuts tonight (UPDATED)

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.
