PRESCOTT--“The Art of Historical Storytelling,” a program featuring artist and historian David Geister, will be presented this Friday from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Great River Road Visitor and Learning Center in Prescott.

Meet Geister in person and learn more about his talents, imaginings and artwork. Enjoy light refreshments and lively discussion with community members and friends.

Geister’s paintings have been featured in “The Military Collector and Historian,” “The Saturday Evening Post” and “The History Channel Magazine,” are found in private collections and have been used by historic sites across the country. His illustrations carry the storylines in noted picture books, including “The Legend of Wisconsin,” “The Voyageur’s Paddle,” “S is for Scientist: A Discovery Alphabet” and “B is for Battle Cry: A Civil War Alphabet,” which was written by his wife, Pat Bauer.

In addition to painting or writing about history, Geister and his wife are historic interpreters, often dressing in period costume to portray a variety of characters from the nation’s past. He lives in Minneapolis with Pat, who shares his love of history and art. 

Arrive early to find seats for the program--seating is limited to 40 people! With questions, call 715-262-0104 or visit
