Nov. 12: Teenage Diaries Revisited
Back in 1996, a group of teenagers were given tape recorders and asked to talk about their lives for the NPR series Teenage Diaries. Listeners became acquainted with people such as Josh, a young man with Tourette’s syndrome, football star Frankie, whose father was incarcerated, and teen mom Melissa. Tomorrow night at 7 you can find out what's happened to the once-teenagers in Teenage Diaries Revisited, a live multimedia event at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in D.C.
