John Boe, a former UC Davis English lecturer and a professional storyteller, will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday at International House, 10 College Park in Davis. Doors to the Community Room open at 1:45 p.m.

Boe will tell stories and play his kalimba. He has performed at the California Storytelling Festival, the Sonoma Storytelling Festival, UC Davis Picnic Day, and at club meetings, schools and hospitals. He last performed at I-House in 2011.

Boe, who tells stories with puppets and musical instruments for children and for adults, has been featured on radio and television, including on ABC’s “20/20.” While at UCD, he headed up the University Writing Program.

One Sunday afternoon per month, children of all ages with an accompanying adult enjoy storytelling performances with an international content at International House. Later this spring, Angela James will perform “Knick-Knack Paddy Whack” — Irish folk tales with a Caribbean twist — on March 17. On April 21, Catherine Mandella will present a program called “Instruments of the World” and on May 19, Allegra Silberstein will offer “Poetry for Children.” Silberstein held the honor of poet laureate of Davis for two years.

Admission is free to I-House members; a suggested donation for nonmembers is $2 per person or $5 per family. For more information, call I-House at 530-753-5007 or email executive director Elisabeth Sherwin at dir@internationalhousedavis.org.
