Award-winning storyteller and multicultural folklorist Donna L. Washington will offer two story-telling performances on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Wake Forest Community House, 133 W. Owen Ave. The shows get underway at 2:20 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Washington has been sharing stories with audiences for over 24 years.

She has been featured at numerous festivals, schools and libraries across the United States and internationally. She is an accomplished author of four children's books with her next one due in 2013.
Donna presents a wide range of tales from many different cultures, including Korean stories, Greek and Celtic myths, African folk tales, Arthurian legends, English lore, American folk heroes, Halloween stories, holiday stories, and a mixture of many others! She also has a wide range of additional tales including personal narratives and stories of her own creation. She spends her days roaming the country performing for schools, libraries, festivals, theaters and special event venues, as well as leading workshops for educators, librarians and anyone else who will listen to her.
