Peter Heller instantly endeared himself to our students. His natural, easygoing style of storytelling, his infectious giggle, and his willingness to treat these teenagers like adults fully won them over. Whether it was in front of 175 students and teachers in the theater or in the more intimate break out sessions in the library, Peter’s writing advice, captivating stories, and down-to-earth humor provided our community the opportunity to see writing not just as a career, but as a natural part of a thoughtful life.
Peter Heller is a wonderful keynote speaker. At the Jackson Hole Writers Conference he had the crowd laughing one moment and crying the next, then laughing thirty seconds later. He was the hit of the conference, not just his keynote but also the workshop he did for us. He was giving and accessible. We are very happy he came and we recommend him highly
Peter is a captivating storyteller, bringing to life not only the natural world he loves and the characters that pass through it, but also how they shape his journeys. His ability to transport an audience through time, through place, and through the eyes of one who has wandered this globe is compelling. He moves easily from the humor and self-deprecations of mishaps in the wild to the deep reservoirs of what it means to be a steward of our natural heritage.
Our student body saw a writer who is gregarious, friendly, deeply sincere and thoughtful, but who also loves to have fun. I have had a blast getting to know Peter and his works, learning alongside my students and peers.
Peter Heller is a masterful storyteller who never fails to amaze his audience. He has a way of engaging throughout his presentation with charm and wit. Real and down to earth Peter is a joy and we loved havinghim at the library.
