Southeast Missouri State University's River Campus will host An Evening of Storytelling this Friday, at 7pm in the Bedell Performance Hall. Two tellers, Donald Davis and Dolores Hydock will be featured in the event. Davis, born in the Southern Appalachians, where his family of storytellers has lived since the late 1700s, tells KZIM-KSIM that he doesn’t remember exactly when or how he became a storyteller. He describes himself as an “oral filmmaker, using anything” he has to “move those pictures in your mind”—body, voice, attitude, emotion—“whatever it takes, because…success is not did he say it, but did you see it?” You can get your ticket for an ‘Evening with Donald Davis and Dolores Hydock’ by calling the River Campus Box Office at (573) 651-2265 or by visiting RiverCampusEvents.com.
