Event Description

Hi folks,

The last event listing for Lani contained the incorrect date. It is this Saturday, AUGUST 8th.

Lani Peterson spins personal tales for adults that will immerse you in the full array of emotions, leaving your heart open, your mind spinning and your spirit yearning for more.

Lani Peterson, Psy.D. is a storyteller, psychologist, and coach whose storytelling and storyteaching has connected her with kids, elders, businessmen, ex-prisoners, and everyday people. Her CD "Stories from Within" won a 2004 honor from Storytelling World Magazine for the original story, "Broken Glass." When not telling stories, Lani is busy creating new ones with her husband and four children in Andover, Massachusetts.

"Lani's story-telling is riveting. I laugh; I cry; I bite my nails and roll my eyes. She puts me in touch with the great worth and epic sweep of life. It is a joy to be in her presence." M. Dolbin

ADULT OPEN MIC: Sign up for your ten minute turn at the mic beginning at 7:00 p.m. Share your own story, song, music, essay or poem.

ADMISSION: FREE (pass the hat for the featured performer)
AUDIENCE: 18 and older
