Peter Aguero, storyteller extraordinaire, will perform Daddy Issues and present a storytelling workshop in November. These are definitely geared toward adults. We are partnering with Off Square Theatre Company to bring Peter from NYC to Wyoming for two days. When Peter acted as the host for The Moth’s appearance at The Center in 2016, the event sold out.
Peter Aguero is an award-winning storyteller, who teaches workshops at universities around the country, hosts The Moth radio hour on National Public Radio, has worked with community story-telling programs for the under-served in NYC, and tells his own stories around North America to packed audiences. He is a MothGrandSLAM champion. Although he has no academic degree, his prowess as a story-teller places him at the forefront of his craft. Born in New Jersey in 1976, he currently lives in Brooklyn where he sometimes sings in a rock band. He is married and lives in the Bronx. You can watch him and his wife in a TEDMed talk about their life with epilepsy. This is real stuff.
There will be a short Q&A with Peter immediately following the performance. This will be moderated by Cassandra Lee, podcaster for KHOL 89.1 Community Radio Station. A native of Wyoming, Cassandra graduated with honors from the University of Colorado at Boulder. As does everybody in Jackson, she wears many hats: yoga instructor, academic tutor, a story-teller in her own right, and a fine poet.
The Workshop will be limited to 12 people. This is an opportunity to improve your story-telling skills before the next Teton County Library Cabin Fever story slam.
You can listen to an interview with KHOL’s Cassandra Lee from 2016.
