NU welcomes award-winning author Ivan Coyote


Stories intended to change the world are the order of day when Nipissing University welcomes Ivan Coyote to campus for a special performance on October 26 at 7 p.m. in the Nipissing Theatre (F213).

Titled Neither, Nor: How to Circumnavigate the Gender Binary in Seven Thousand Easy Steps, Coyote’s performance will be followed by a Q & A and book signing to launch the newly released Tomboy Survival Guide.

The award-winning author of 11 books, Coyote is also the creator of four short films, and has released three albums that combine storytelling with music. A seasoned stage performer and long-time road dog, over the last eighteen years Coyote has become an audience favourite at storytelling, writer's, film, poetry, and folk music festivals from Anchorage to Amsterdam.

The Globe and Mail called Coyote "a natural-born storyteller" and the Ottawa Xpress once said that "Coyote is to Canadian literature what kd lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture."

Coyote often grapples with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity as well as topics such as family, class, social justice and queer liberation, and always with a generous heart, a quick wit, and the nuanced and finely-honed timing of a gifted raconteur. Coyote’s stories remind of us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while inspiring us to change the world.

Coyote’s latest book, Tomboy Survival Guide, has just been published with Arsenal Pulp Press.

This special performance is sponsored by Nipissing’s department of Gender Equality and Social Justice and Student Development and Services.

Coyote’s performance is free-of-charge and all are welcome.
