FORT KENT, Maine - Storyteller Mike Daisey has been described as "one of the finest solo performers of his generation" by The New York Times, according to a Maine Arts Commission (MAC) newsletter about the upcoming Maine International Conference of the Arts. Daisey, who was born in Fort Kent but left the area when he was a child, is one of five scheduled keynotes for the conference, which is set for Oct. 24-26 at the Collins Center for the Arts in Orono. The workshop will also include about 60 workshops and 20 showcased artists, according to the newsletter. Daisey's work, "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs," was recognized as one of the year's best theater pieces by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Seattle Times, Seattle Weekly, San Jose Mercury News, and The San Francisco Bay Guardian, according to MAC.
