Family Portraits told by Donald Davis
Feb. 18, 2012
Frank and Katrina Basile Theater, History Center
7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Back by popular demand, Donald Davis takes us on a journey through his rural North Carolina town, meeting friends, neighbors and family members along the way. His colorful tales of family idiosyncrasies often leave “listeners limp with laughter” according to The New York Times. Smithsonian Magazine says Donald is “a master of timing” and he has his audience “hanging on his every word.” In 2010, Donald was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Storytelling Network for his lifelong dedication to expanding the public awareness of the art of storytelling, the teaching of the art of storytelling and for his body of work. For Donald, storytelling is a way of giving and living life. He invites each listener to come along, to pull deep inside for one's own stories, to personally share and co-create the common experiences that celebrate the creative spirit. For Donald Davis storytelling "is not what I do for a living ... it is how I do all that I do while I am living."
