The public performance will be at the following times and locations:

Thursday, June 22, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Ocracoke Preservation Museum

Saturday, June 24, 10 to 11:15 a.m. at Books to Be Red.

An internationally renowned storyteller, Davis holds his sought-after workshops throughout the year in various locations.

“Your identity is not how many college degrees you have, but it’s your stories,” Davis says about what he teaches.

And that identity is covered by layers of the past.

“Stories carry our identity—the people you came from and the things you’ve lived through,” he says.  “The more we know our stories, the more we can make proper decisions about things to keep and things to discard.”
