Provided to the Tahoe Daily Tribune. Tahoe Arts Project will bring International storyteller Diane Ferlatte, right, and musician Erik Pearson to the South Shore. The duo will be performing on March 4 at the Embassy Suites in Stateline.

Tahoe Arts Project will present international storyteller Diane Ferlatte along with musician Erik Pearson at 6 p.m. on March 4 at Embassy Suites in Stateline. Members of the Lake Tahoe Reading Council will be on hand to support Tahoe Arts Project and to share information about their organization.

Ferlatte has been sharing her stories since 1980. One of her most vivid childhood memories is of listening to her relatives tell stories on her grandparents’ porch in New Orleans. She views storytelling as a traditional art form and an expressive way to pass on history, culture and values. Ferlatte was a featured storyteller at the annual storytelling festival in Jonesborough, Tenn., and has toured internationally in Austria, New Zealand, Australia, Bermuda and Holland. She has performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., in the salute to children as part of President Clinton’s inauguration. She has received awards from Parents’ Choice and The American Library Association. As part of Tahoe Arts Project’s arts in the schools programs, Ferlatte and Pearson will perform in local schools Feb. 28 through March 4.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for children and seniors and may be purchased in advance at South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Douglas chambers of commerce. Tickets also will be available at the door. Seating will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Tahoe Arts Project is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide cultural enrichment and diversity for the community through the arts and education with particular focus on the youth.
