Storytelling Festival Preview
Date: Tuesday, September 4
Enjoy a free preview of the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival with your friends and family. Our partnership with the festival allows the Library to bring in fantastic storytellers and may inspire you to check out more of the same at the festival later in the week.
About Donald Davis-
"If Elvis was the King of Rock and Roll and Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, storytelling’s reigning monarch would have to be Donald Davis. As a master of the personal story, Donald Davis invites you into the stories of his life to discover the stories of your own. A Sequoia in the forest of tellers, Donald’s North Carolina cadences transport you into a miraculous place where, by listening to his stories, you find yourself. Though laced together with wit and laughter, Donald’s narratives always glow with wisdom and humanity."
