The Green Room presents: Peter Aguero

The Englert Theatre — Monday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m.

Livestream: Little Village Mag on Facebook

Peter Aguero will speak at the Englert Theater as part of the Green Room series.

At 7 p.m. on Oct. 9, The Green Room experiment culminates with a celebrity storyteller whose work is familiar to listeners of storytelling radio program the Moth: Peter Aguero. He is a Moth GrandSLAM champion, regular host of Moth shows and an instructor for the MothSHOP community program.

His ability to articulate the bones of storytelling—to help others articulate the hinge events that inform their innermost identity—is almost unrivaled. Listening to Aguero tell his own story is to understand more about how potent a story truly is, how much sharing and hearing can communicate the most important truths. Currently sharing his story “Daddy Issues,” Aguero’s presence and comforting voice will prove a fitting conclusion to The Green Room’s themes of home and wonder, tolerance and literacy.

A compelling entertainer in his own right, Aguero takes on the weighty honor of bringing The Green Room to a close. Andrea Wilson of the Iowa Writer’s House will open for Aguero, describing local avenues for community members to engage in the kind of transformative storytelling that Aguero shows is possible. The event is free and open to the public.

The Green Room is an innovative educational experience that invites the community to sit in on a series of six speakers selected by Univ. of Iowa Professor Dave Gould for his honors students. Each night’s class features a local non-profit and a nationally renowned speaker, with time for conversation geared toward improving the Iowa City community as a whole. The series will be livestreamed by Little Village Mag on Facebook Aug. 28, Sept. 11, Sept. 25, Oct. 2 and Oct. 9.
