Presented by Arts in Medicine Regi Carpenter, Storyteller

For over 20 years Regi Carpenter has been utilizing the power of stories to motivate and inspire. Regi’s stories have been featured on Sirius Radio, Apple Seed Radio, The Moth and NPR. Her story Snap! is a winner of the Boston Story Slam. Snap! is the true tale of her severe mental illness as a teen and her journey back to reality. Her memoir, Where There’s Smoke, There’s Dinner: stories of a seared childhood, brings life to her humor and honesty. Regi is also the founder of Stories with Spirit, an initiative dedicated to bringing songs of joy and stories of hope to grieving children and the people who love and care for them in homes, hospices and hospitals.

This performance is in part of a week-long Arts in Medicine Residency.
