About the Author
Scott Hilton Davis is a lifelong storyteller, filmmaker, author, and collector of Jewish short stories written in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Scott began his acting career as a child performing in Jewish skits and plays in Los Angeles, California, and now offers his stories and talks to synagogues, Jewish Community Centers, cultural clubs, and religious school audiences across the country. Scott is the author of a collection of eight original short stories entitled "Chanukah Tales from Oykvetchnik" and "Souls Are Flying! A Celebration of Jewish Stories." Convinced of the historical, cultural, and ethical significance of stories by Sholem Aleichem, I. L. Peretz, Sholem Abramovitsh, and Jacob Dinezon, Scott began using storytelling to bring the works of these beloved Jewish writers to new audiences. As part of this effort, he published the first English translation of Jacob Dinezon's autobiographical short stories, "Memories and Scenes: Shtetl, Childhood, Writers," and established a website to honor the life and career of this important Yiddish writer. Scott is also an Emmy Award-winning producer of documentaries and dramas for public television. He lives in Raleigh, North Carolina.
