NAMI to Host Humorous Storyteller March 5
NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness)-Moore County is planning an evening of "some good ol' down-home humor" while providing education about brain illnesses.
Ed "Moose" Duke, a local professional storyteller, will present "I Knew I Wasn't Normal" at 7 p.m. Monday, March 5, in the Community Room of Moore Regional Specialty Clinic on the corner of Page Road and Memorial Drive in Pinehurst. The public is invited, NAMI said.
Duke's presentation is stories that come from his struggles with severe bipolar condition. While the condition is serious, his stories include humor - "Bi-Polar Exploration." This inspirational presentation is for families and friends of people who suffer with a brain illness or the individuals themselves and for mental health professionals.
"Ed 'Moose' Duke is my kind of liar," Jim Dodson wrote when introducing readers of The Pilot to Duke in his Sunday essay in the Nov. 13, 2011, edition. "When characters like Ed Duke speak, I pull up a chair and listen."
Duke has performed extensively for audiences throughout the region and state. This presentation is free and open to the public. Anyone needing more information can call (910) 295-1053.
