Acclaimed storyteller David Gonzalez paints a vivid picture of the people and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world in Cuentos: Tales from the Latino World on Sunday, September 30 at 2 p.m. at the Clark County Library.
These stories are filled with memorable characters, fantastic plots and positive messages that are sure to captivate the imagination. Hear about the silly antics of the Puerto Rican hero Juan Bobo or the mysterious powers of the Orishas in a suite of Afro-Cuban stories. Combining English and Spanish words throughout the stories and songs, Cuentos is a perfect introduction to the world of Latino literature and culture.
From London’s Royal National Theater to Broadway to hundreds of schools across North America, Gonzalez has performed to more than 5,000 audiences worldwide. A winner of the Helen Hayes Performing Artist of the Year Award, he is applauded for his vocal, physical and narrative talents and gift for mimicry, comic timing and wordplay.
Gonzalez received his doctorate in Music Therapy from NYU’s School of Education, where he later taught for 10 years. He was the host of New York Kids on WNYC for eight seasons and is a contributor to NPR’s Studio 360.
