Tomboys, Dead Gophers, and a Coyote – Ivan Coyote at the WORD Christchurch Autumn Season

Funny, tender, perceptive - Ivan Coyote is all these things, and on Monday night I was lucky enough to see them talk at The Piano as part of the WORD Christchurch Autumn Season. https://twitter.com/WORDChCh/status/864392888372809728 I was really disappointed to miss Ivan on their last trip to Christchurch last year, so as soon as I learnt they would be back this year, I made sure to get my … (more)

An evening with Ivan Coyote – 16th of May

Last year, I went to two events run by WORD Christchurch, and I fell in love with Ivan E Coyote. I first saw them (Ivan goes by the gender-neutral pronoun) at Speaking Proud which I'd attended to see old favourite David Levithan. Ivan read their reply to a letter someone had written them, 'Shouldn't I feel pretty'. It was a powerful, powerful letter and we were both tearing up by the end o… (more)

Traverses issues of gender and identity with a wistful, perceptive eye.

Alina's pick: After seeing Ivan bring audiences to tears at the WORD festival I had to read all their books! Funny and heartbreaking in equal measure.

Alison's pick: I snapped up a copy of this before the book table at the WORD Fesitival completely sold out - honest and insightful, funny and sad, Ivan E. Coyote is a brilliant storyteller. Read ALL their things!

The newest collection of short stories by queer Canadian storyteller Ivan E. Coyote is by turns touching, heartbreaking, and heartening. Coyote's signature autobiographical voice deftly weaves simple and powerful tales of family and loss, of being 'other' in small communities, and of her life as a storyteller and teacher. There are more than a few gems in this book and it is great reading for anyone interested in modern Canadian stories

The influence of Ivan's amazing live storytelling comes through in this collection! Possibly my and my mother's favourite!

Ivan E. Coyote is a wicked storyteller - after Shelagh Rogers from the Next Chapter recommended it, I was will to give it a try. A short sweet book of glimpses into the storyteller's life, it is definitely worth a read.

The short stories are only 1 or 2 pages long, so good to do one in quick 3 minute read. Fantastically surprising. I am very motivated to go and see her storytell live.
