Yesterday morning and today, at 10:30 am, participants in Donald Davis' storytelling workshop entertain folks in the side yard of the Ocracoke Preservation Society museum. Typically, every seat is taken as three tellers share often humorous tales (frequently of growing up in the south).

Last night at the Ocrafolk Opry Donald himself shared a hilarious story about his experience as a second grader in the mountains of North Carolina.

If you are on the island be sure to come out to Deepwater Theater Friday night for more storytelling (or maybe you'll want to join Amy, Lou Ann, or me for a ghost & history walk...we have a few good tales also -- just sign up at Village Craftsmen).

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is "Remembering Growing up on Ocracoke" by Lawton Howard. You can read it here.

  1. On my last visit to Ocracoke in May, I bought Donald Davis' "Riding the Butterflies" about his school days. It was a great read--very funny-- and I am passing it on to my 4th grade teacher tomorrow...we are having a reunion after 28 years!

    Did he tell the story of going to the bathroom in his pants and "hoping to keep his back to the wall, so that no one would notice..." So funny!!

    See you in September (our 3rd visit this year...)
