Ivan's stories manage to handle both the hilarious and the historical with reverence and compassion, and remind us all of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world. This performance is presented by Creative Writing at Brock University in partnership with the Brock University Faculty Association, Women and Gender Studies, Social Justice Research Institute, Human Rights and Equity, The Women's Campus Safety Fund, OUTNiagara and the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre. "The work is a charming and nuanced contribution to the genre; the writing has a springy, playful quality that is highly sensory. The prose throughout is thick with grief and tenderness...a salve for a tired heart." -Jackie Mlotek, Quill and Quire “From pronoun choice and queer visibility to gendered spaces like bathrooms, Coyote showcases the complexity of everyday experience...On all these topics, the expression is careful, deeply considered and suffused with compassion.” -Bret Josep Grubisic, Vancouver Sun “There is a courageous vulnerability in Coyote’s writing, in which they offer up their own stories in the hope of fostering connections and overcoming prejudice...The book is hilarious, heart-breaking, uplifting. It is, in other words, profoundly human.” -Michelle Deines, Understorey Magazine “Coyote ought to be recognized as one of Canada’s great humorists, although often the stories are the laughing-through-tears variety. A lot of grit and a lot of heart.” -Jade Colbert, Globe and Mail Ivan Coyote photo by Emily Cooper Photography #TheArtsLiveHere #BrockU #OurHomeSTC   Virtual Event Brock University OUTNiagara First Ontario Performing Arts Centre America/Toronto public
