“Truer than Fiction"
Featuring Storyteller Lani Peterson
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
