Storyteller To Highlight Women from World Folklore
Storyteller Dawn Daniels will share stories of women from world folklore during a Women’s Month event at Alma College.
Daniels will present “Wild & Wise, Gutsy & Glorious: Voices of Women in World Folklore” at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 25 in Jones Auditorium. Admission is free and open to the public.
A resident of Alma, Daniels has traveled widely across the United States as a performer for audiences of all ages. Her stories and songs draw from a wide-ranging repertoire of world folklore, literary classics, sacred works, mythology, legend, fairy tale and original creations.

Daniels is a phenomenal performer; to hear her tell a story is to be
transported — not only to magical places, but to the inner reaches of
our own fears and longings,” says Joanne Gilbert, professor of
communication at Alma College. “By creating characters at once engaging
and profound, she uses her expressive face and incredible voice to
leave her audience simply spellbound.”
Daniels studied literature, music and theatre at Malone College in Canton, Ohio, and holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Eastern Michigan University.
