Allegra Silberstein will be the featured performer at Children’s International Storytelling program at I-House on Sunday, May 19, at 2 p.m. She will be performing in the Hagan Room at International House Davis, 10 College Park, Davis.
Silberstein grew up on a farm in Wisconsin but has lived in California since 1963. Her love of poetry began as a child when her mother would recite poems as she worked. In addition to three chapbooks of poetry, she has more than 100 publications and a growing number online.
In, March of 2010, she became the first poet laureate for the city of Davis. Other activities include being a member the Threshold Choir of Davis, and dancing with the Third Stage dance company. Recently she has been singing and plays washboard with the Front Porch Bluegrass group.
International House offers storytelling programs monthly except December for children age 5 to 9 and their parents. The event is free to members; others are asked to donate $2 per child or $5 per family.
“If you would like to perform at one of our events, contact me,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director. “We have had storytellers, magicians, musicians and actors — and a wonderful audience.”
Coming up on Sunday, June 9, will be Milt Briggs, musical storyteller and champion whistler.
