David Titus, Storyteller With String,
Visits Southern Oaks and Choctaw Libraries

With a piece of string and the thread of a story, David Titus can take you anywhere in the world. 

“The String Man” has been collecting string figures and the stories that go with them for over 40 years, and he’s visiting two Metropolitan Library System libraries to share them with delighted audiences.  “String Stories” will be presented on Monday, June 7, at the Southern Oaks Library, 6900 S. Walker, 631-4468 from 10:30 to 11:30a.m., and again the same day at the Choctaw Library, 2525 Muzzy, 390-8418, from 3:00 to 4:00p.m.  Both performances are free and open to the public, but space is limited so people are asked to call ahead to pre-register.

“David Titus is a past president of Territory Tellers,” said Rosemary Czarski, Choctaw Library Director, “and that’s an organization for storytellers.  I know from having seen him perform many times that he is very entertaining.”

Titus has performed on six continents and in countries from Nepal to Finland.  His video of string stories for children illustrating the Biblical Parables received high marks from School Library Journal.

“I know everyone will enjoy David’s shows as much as I always have,” Czarski added.
