Peter Aguero, storyteller extraordinaire, will perform Daddy Issues and present a storytelling workshop in November. These are definitely geared toward adults. When Peter acted as the host for The Moth’s appearance at The Center in 2016, the event sold out.
There will be a short Q&A with Peter immediately following the performance. This will be moderated by Cassandra Lee, podscaster 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, and a story-teller in her own right.
Peter Aguero is an award-winning story-teller, 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 Moth GrandSLAM 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 sings in a rock band. He is married.
Peter Aguero, storyteller extraordinaire, will lead a three-hour storytelling workshop for adults and mature teens. The goal of the project is to provide an opportunity for writers an oral-storytellers to learn from each other, to craft better stories, whether on the page or as spoken words. Through the art and craft of story-telling, people remember what each has in common with the entire community, how each of us experiences love and hate, joy and sadness, no matter our past or present.
