Storyteller Donna Washington will entertain families Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Wilson County Public Library.
The free event is made possible with the help of an Arts Council of Wilson Grassroots Grant and the Friends of the Wilson County Public Library.
Washington is known as an author and professional teller who’s been told she is “better than television.” She uses her vocal pyrotechnics and knowledge of early literacy and language acquisition to present programs that celebrate the spoken word.
Washington’s father was a natural storyteller who told Greek myths and the Arthurian legends at the dinner table as if they were his own adventures. Later, while studying theater at Northwestern University, Washington rediscovered her love for storytelling, and it became the focus for her performing life.
Her career spans more than 30 years of sharing stories both nationally and internationally. She is an award-winning author, recording artist and performer.
