David Gonzalez: I Come from... A Celebration of Multiculturalism

Friday, February 24, 2017


David Gonzalez presents:
I Come from... A Celebration of Multiculturalism

Campbell County Public Library, in partnership with the Campbell County High School (CCHS) International Club (sponsored by Renee Fritzen), is pleased to welcome David Gonzalez to your library February 24 at 6pm for a special after-hours event -- free and open to the public.

Award-winning storyteller, musician, poet, actor, and writer Dr. David Gonzalez, is a one-of-a-kind artist. He has created numerous productions that combine compelling drama, music, and multi-media; all of which enchant audiences nationwide with stories of love, hope, courage, and wisdom.

This event is the culmination of Gonzalez’ creative writing residency at CCHS February 21-24. He, along with CCHS students, will perform original Spanish and bilingual poems and stories written during the week. The program will wrap up with singing, dancing and refeshments for all.

Corporate leaders, college students, and young people alike are enthralled with Gonzalez‘ passion, storytelling, and life lessons. He was nominated for a 2006 Drama Desk Award for The Frog Bride presented at Broadway’s New Victory Theater. He has created numerous productions including the critically acclaimed ¡Sofrito!, MytholoJazz, Double Crossed (commissioned by the Smithsonian Institution), As If The Past Were Listening, The Secret of the Ceiba Tree, Finding North, and City of Dreams. David wrote Rise for Freedom! for the Cincinnati Opera and Mariel, an Afro-Cuban musical which won the "Macy’s New Play Prize for Young Audiences." Mr. Gonzalez’ poetry was featured in Bill Moyers’ documentary Fooling with Words on PBS, and NPR’s All Things Considered. He was the host of New York Kids on WNYC for eight seasons, and has made over 3000 appearances at colleges, businesses, schools, and at many of the prestigious performing arts centers across the country and abroad.
