Storytelling Festival

In the age of digital technology, storytelling is alive and well. In fact, many professional storytellers travel, working the festival circuit. Donald Davis is on the road 42 weekends this year, entertaining audiences with tales about identity, spirituality and everyday life.

This weekend, Davis will be at the Historic Oak View County Park for the 30th anniversary of Storytelling Festival, an event hosted by Wake County Libraries. He joins host Frank Stasio to discuss the art of crafting a story and the power of listening in a room full of people.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
Shawn Wen joined the staff of The State of Things in March 2012 and served as associate producer until February 2014.
