About the Presenter

Monica Peterson weaves vivid tales for audiences, young and old, offering both fascinating, historical sagas and timeless folklore.

Monica performs her historical programming while dressed in costume and featuring photos and artifacts that complement the tales. Some of these programs laud local women whose courage helped win the American Revolution, while other shows honor the immigrant experience, famous presidents, and people who triumphed over racial injustice. Monica also presents folktales that celebrate holidays and seasons in a non-sectarian, inclusive, and wildly entertaining way.
