Create the imagery in your mind as Donald Davis returns to Dublin GA to captivate your senses during a free Evening of Holiday Storytelling on Tuesday, December 12th at 7 PM! Presented by Smith’s of Dublin, this event is taking place at the Dublin Carnegie in Downtown Dublin GA. Donations are being accepted to benefit the Salvation Army.
Prominent storyteller Donald Davis grew up in a culture of storytelling in the Southern Appalachian mountains. Listening to stories from his family provided the foundation for his talent. He began retelling his family stories as a child and started adding to stories with his own life experiences until he was repeatedly asked to “tell it again, on purpose.” Davis has been most attracted to familial stories and those related to his roots and locality.
Davis served as a United Methodist Minister for over twenty years and has authored several books and original recordings. He has also been awarded the Circle of Excellence and the Lifetime Achievement Awards from the National Storytelling Network.
Smith’s of Dublin began hosting An Evening of Storytelling to bring arts and culture to downtown Dublin GA. Smith’s owner, Natalie Curry, initiated this recurring event in Dublin in 2016. Curry grew up attending an annual storytelling event organized by her mother in La Grange, GA which is currently in its 25th year and wanted to bring the tradition to Dublin.
Admission for An Evening of Holiday Storytelling is free, and donations are being accepted to benefit the Salvation Army. Space is limited, so tickets are required. Tickets are available at Smith’s of Dublin, located at 130 West Jackson Street in Downtown Dublin GA.
