Overview

There are a few things you should know before reading Don White. First, Don is a seasoned performer who has spent years honing the craft of leading a roomful of people across the entire spectrum of emotion, before leaving them in a better place than they were when they arrived.

He's good at this. The audience often responds by dragging everyone they care about to the next show.

The second thing you need to know is that Don can do this with the written word as well.

Once you savor the laughs, heart, and wisdom pearls offered up in Memoirs of a C Student, you will immediately want to share them with those you care about. That's because Don has tapped into the kind of storytelling that could only be written by someone who has experienced life in the same way most of us have: through hard work, hard love, and paying attention to the things that really matter.

"I knew this book was going to be a pack of lies as soon as I saw the title. Because my brother was a D student." -- Michael White

"My father used the word 'neoplatonist' in this book. He has no idea what that word means." -- Lawren White

"This thing better make lots of money." -- Mrs. White

Don White is a singer/songwriter from Lynn, Massachusetts. He has six CDs and two DVDs. This is his first book.

Meet the Author

If you laugh and cry in the stretch of ten minutes, you either need a vacation or you are sitting in the audience at a Don White show. White is a working class family man first, and happens to be a thoughtful songwriter and master storyteller.

White learned his art in the trenches, often doing nine shows a week at Boston’s Catch A Rising Star comedy club over two and a half years. Studying the masters who passed though that fabled club, he developed his own infectious brand of humor and pathos, in song and story, that rivets the crowd wherever he plays.

"I see little difference between the skills of various performance artists", he says. "I most admire someone like Utah Phillips who weaves a seamless stream of song, story-telling, poetry, and comedy."

Whether he is singing, speaking, or setting up the sneakiest punch line of the night, Don has the hearts of his audience. They know they have his.
