Peterson Toscano

Peterson Toscano

An evening of stories. Most weird. Many true.

Experience the artful, playful, outrageously funny, and deeply moving storytelling craft of Peterson Toscano. Connecting issues and ideas to bizarre personal experiences, literature, science, and even the odd Bible story, Peterson transforms right before your eyes into a whole cast of comic characters who explore the serious worlds of gender, sexuality, privilege, and environmental justices.

Visit to learn more about Peterson.

This event is open to the campus and public.

Snacks and refreshments will be served.
