Storytelling Culture featuring Donald Davis

Storytelling Culture featuring Donald Davis

Laura Beth Peters and Lainie Stubblefield

Donald Davis was born in Waynesville, North Carolina, a small town in the mountainous region of Western North Carolina. He received a B.A. from Davidson College and a Master of Divinity degree from Duke University Divinity School. Davis served as a Methodist minister in High Point, North Carolina for over 20 years before retiring to become a professional storyteller. He has recorded over 25 storytelling albums and written several books. His long career as a teller and his promotion of the cultural importance of storytelling through seminars and master classes has led to Davis being dubbed the "dean of storytelling.” Davis has appeared on National Public Radio, CNN and ABC's "Nightline".

Davis is a strong advocate of storytelling, not just the profession, but also storytelling in everyday life. He feels that we connect with one another through the stories that we tell each other across the family dinner table.
