Scott Hilton Davis is an Emmy Award-winning public television producer, storyteller, and collector of Eastern European Jewish stories from the turn of the 20th century.
In 2007, Scott founded Jewish Storyteller Press to bring the works of 19th century Jewish writers to 21st century readers. He is the author of Souls Are Flying! A Celebration of Jewish Stories, Half A Hanukkah: Four Stories for the Festival of Lights, and Between Heaven and Earth, four one-act plays based on the stories of I. L. Peretz.
His current passion is to recover the works of the once-beloved 19th century Yiddish writer Jacob Dinezon. For the past decade, Scott has been working to make Dinezon’s novels and short stories available in English to a whole new generation of readers.
