Peter Burns has been a professional storyteller for more than 30 years. His work has been featured on National Public Radio and New Hampshire Public Radio. A recipient of numerous awards including two fellowships from the Vermont Arts Council, his style has been described as quirky and engaging.

Storytelling VT hosts a special night of stories, in partnership with the Fletcher Free Library and RETN. This special night is in conjunction with “Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean to Be Human?,” a traveling exhibition by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) and the American Library Association (ALA), coming to the library February 2017. Our theme for the night is "What does it mean to be human?" and is told live without notes, in the magical living room that is the Light Club.
