Ferris State University’s 2011-12 Arts and Lectures Performing Artist Series is set to feature storyteller La’Ron Williams on Wednesday, Dec. 7 in the Rankin Student Center Dome Room at 7 p.m.
Williams has garnered national acclaim for his award-winning storytelling. He has toured the United States extensively to present programs and workshops. His music-filled storytelling performances are a blend of original and traditional tales. Williams’ brand of storytelling is designed to improve literacy, encourage community spirit, foster a greater sense of cooperation, promote peaceful methods of conflict resolution, raise self-esteem and add depth to the historical knowledge of the American ideal of democratic inclusion.
For more information about the visit of Williams to Ferris, contact Cate Arroe, chair of the Arts and Lectures Committee, at (231) 591-2070.
