2019 Featured Teller - Regi Carpenter

Regi Carpenter lives in Ithaca, New York, but travels around the world telling her stories and teaching the art of storytelling. Compassionate, witty, pithy and powerful, her work has been heard on Sirius Satellite Radio, the Moth, Appleseed Radio, TedX, and MassMouth.

For over twenty years, Regi Carpenter has been bringing songs and stories to audiences of all ages throughout the world in schools, theaters, libraries, at festivals, conferences and in people’s back yards. An award-winning performer, Regi has toured her solo shows and workshops in theaters, festivals and schools, nationally and internationally.

Regi is the youngest daughter in a family that pulsates with contradictions: religious and raucous, tender but terrible, unfortunate yet irrepressible. These tales celebrate the glorious and gut – wrenching lives of four generations of Carpenter s raised on the Saint Lawrence River in Clayton, New York. Tales of underwater tea parties, drowning lessons and drives to the dump give voice to multi-generations of family life in a small river town with an undercurrent.
