Get in the holiday mood with a visit with master storyteller Donald Davis. He returns to the Fearrington Barn to tell richly woven stories of his childhood. The retired Methodist minister has been piecing together these yarns for close to 40 years. Storytelling comes naturally for Davis, who grew up with a host of chatty aunts and uncles in Waynesville, in the western tip of North Carolina. Davis has been featured at the World’s Fair, the Smithsonian Institution, the National Storytelling Festival, and as guest host on NPR’s “Good Evening.”
The details: Dec. 15, 11 a.m. and Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. The Fearrington Barn, 220 Market St., in Fearrington Village in Pittsboro. 919-542-3030
The cost is a donation of canned goods and gently used children’s books. This event fills up quickly so get there early.
