Ivan Coyote

No one tells a story quite like Ivan Coyote. Her work resounds with all ages, genders and sexualities. Deeply personally, yet uniquely universal. Coyote can make readers laugh and cry---consecutively. Coyote’s back in town as the keynote speaker at Making Waves 2011: A Gay/Straight Alliance Conference at Halifax West High School. “If I can play even a minor role in inspiring youth to treat each other with care and respect, well, then I feel like that will make a huge difference in the lives of many kids, and very well might save a life,” says Coyote. “That is no little thing, and I am grateful.” With over six award-winning collections of stories, one novel, three albums and her latest endeavour, Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme, edited with partner Zena Sharman, Coyote is always on the prowl for a good story. While Coyote is in town, expect an evening of storytelling at The Company House on November 3. –Shannon Webb-Campbell
