Ivan Coyote
Yellowknife! I am so excited to be coming back. Please check out my festival schedule here:Let's welcome Ivan Coyote to our 19th annual NorthWords NWT literary festival. Ivan Coyote is a writer and storyteller. Born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon, they are the author of thirteen books, the creator of four films, six stage shows, and three albums that combine storytelling with music. Coyote’s books have won the ReLit Award, been named a Stonewall Honour Book, been longlisted for Canada Reads, and been shortlisted for the Hilary Weston Prize for non-fiction, and the Governor General’s Award for non-fiction twice. In 2017 Ivan was given an honorary Doctor of Laws from Simon Fraser University, and in 2023 they received the first Honorary Doctor of Arts ever bestowed on anyone by Yukon University. Coyote’s stories grapple with the complex and intensely personal topics of gender identity, family, class, and queer liberation, but always with a generous heart, and a quick wit. Ivan’s 13th book, Care Of, was released in June 2021 by McClelland and Stewart and their new one-person show Playlist premiered in February of 2024.Find them here: FRIDAY, MAY 31 Writers Retreat 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Explorer HotelNorthWords Showcase7:30 p.m., Northern Arts and Cultural CentreSATURDAY, JUNE 1Workshop: Talking the Talk: A live performance workshop with Ivan Coyote3 p.m.-4:30 p.m., Top KnightBlush: An Evening of Erotica & Sensual Spoken Word7:30 p.m., Top KnightSUNDAY, JUNE 2Closing Words: Writing for Change2:30 p.m-4 p.m., Explorer HotelTo purchase or book tickets to any of these events, click here: www.eventbrite.com/cc/northwords-writers-festival-2024-3346019#northwordsnwt #lifeintheknife #spectacularnwt #amreading #amwriting #nwtarts #ivancoyote ...
