Gretchen Peterson
Tuesday, November 12

Gretchen Peterson‘s storytelling repertoire includes personal stories, original folktales, fairy tales, and myths—usually with the theme of women who love women. Known for her dedication to practice, preparation, and polish, Gretchen brings a crisp and commanding presence to every story. She loves that storytelling lets her unleash her inner actress!

John Cummings
Monday, December 9

John Cummings is a litigator, activist, and unrepentant extrovert. He was raised in Butte, Montana among loud Italians and soft-spoken Irish, all of whom loved a good story and a witty retort. He told his first public story at a Tacoma Pride event, after which he proposed to his husband Ross. John and Ross now host Homegrown Stories, a salon storytelling event held in their home in Fircrest, featuring true stories and delicious food. They live with two exchange students—Sota and Ball—who are teaching John and Ross how to parent teenagers. They also live with two house cats—Fluffy and Ben—who patiently endure their humans’ nonsense.
