Tell Me a Story

Storyteller David Novak has been described as "The Brothers Grimm and Carl Jung meet Monty Python" and "one of the most exciting storytelling talents seen in America." Novak will share his stories with Averett and the community on April 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Blount Chapel. The event, part of the springs Arts@Averett Series, is free.

Novak, who has a background in theatre arts, began storytelling in 1978 and has been a "platform teller" in the national storytelling revival since 1988. In 2002, he received the Circle of Excellence award from the National Storytelling Network, which recognizes excellence in the art of storytelling.

He appears at festivals around the country and has been at the North Charleston Arts Festival, Talking Island Festival in Honolulu, Hawaii, Washington Storytellers Theater and the National Storytelling Festival. Currently, he is an adjunct instructor for AB Tech College, UNC-Asheville and East Tennessee State University.
