Donald Davis & CORA

Master storyteller Donald Davis filled the Fearrington Barn on Saturday and Sunday, delighting audiences with his annual holiday yarns. McIntyre’s is always honored to be the finale of Mr. Davis’s annual nation-wide tour!

In its 25th year with McIntyre’s Books, Davis’ performances raised critical relief for CORA, Chatham County’s Food Bank: over $1,000 was raised and over 1,500 pounds of canned goods were donated over the weekend.

McIntyre’s owner Keebe Fitch looks forward to Davis’ stories every year, “It’s just feels so good to have some warmth and laughter to tuck you in to the last part of the year!”
