Allegra Silberstein, Davis’ first poet laureate, will be the featured performer at the Children’s International Storytelling Program at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 19, in the Hagan Room of International House, 10 College Park in 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, Silberstein has more than 100 publications and a growing number online.

In March 2010, she was selected as the city of Davis’ first poet laureate. She also is a member the Threshold Choir of Davis, and dances with Pamela Trokanski’s 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 with their parents. The sessions are free to members, and others are asked to donate $2 per child or $5 for a 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.”

Call Sherwin at 530-753-5007.

Coming up on Sunday, June 9, will be Milt Briggs, musical storyteller and champion whistler.
