ABOUT THE TELLERS -
Regi Carpenter is the youngest daughter in a family that pulsates with contradictions: religious and raucous, tender but terrible, unfortunate yet irrepressible; four generations of Carpenters raised on the Saint Lawrence River. Tales of underwater tea parties, drowning lessons, and drives to the dump give voice to generations of family life in a small river town with an undercurrent. More about Regi
Liza Newell grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Her love of storytelling is inspired by stories told around the dinner table and by the fireplace. Liza’s stories are shaped by her experiences of a small town childhood, of summers spent in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and of what it means to leave and find home again in different corners of the world.
