|Mitch Capel "Gran'daddy Junebug"|
The University Libraries at UNC Greensboro, with the help of the Pam and David Sprinkle Children’s Book Author and Storyteller Fund, are pleased to sponsor his visit to North Carolina from September 7-11, 2017. He will visit classrooms at Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools on Thursday, September 7 and Friday, September 8, and will make a family storytelling appearance at the Bookmarks Festival of Books and Authors in Winston-Salem on Saturday, September 9. Additionally, Capel will appear at UNCG on Monday, September 11 to provide two storytelling sessions for 450 4th graders from Guilford County Schools, as well as a Q & A session for UNCG students studying to be elementary school teachers.
Continuing his family tradition of preserving culture, his storytelling event at UNCG will teach personal responsibility, coping with peer pressure, being true to yourself and striving for excellence. This highly energetic program will utilize a tremendous amount of audience participation.
Capel attended North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina and Howard University in Washington, D.C. studying speech and theatre.
