Nancy Donoval: My Family Name

Feb 14, 2018

Summer is a great time for picnics and family gatherings. Anytime families eat together out come the family stories to be feasted upon. A lot of these stories may be very small, but they are nonetheless important and interesting. Here is a family story that starts with a phone book.

The teller, Nancy Donoval, hails from Chicago. She is very involved with socially conscious storytelling, but she is also the 2010 National Story Slam winner. Here is one of her family stories.

That was Nancy Donoval.

On Saturday, July 18, 7:30 pm, Story Telling Under the Stars, near Erwinna, Pennsylvania, a little bit south of here. This is storytelling around a campfire with the theme of “INTERCONNECTED.” You can also put your name in the bowl and have a chance to tell a five minute story yourself! This is great family fun. To find out more, go to the Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild website, LVSTORYTELLING.ORG.
