Ivan Coyote: Tomboy Survival Guide (2017)

Auckland Writers Festival Schools Programme 2017
Proudly supported by Freemasons Foundation


Ivan Coyote is a remarkable writer and storyteller - the author of 11 books, creator of four short films and co-producer of three albums combining storytelling with music. A clear audience favourite of festivals from Anchorage to Amsterdam, Christchurch and beyond, the
Ottawa Xpress has said “Coyote is to Canadian literature what kd lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture”. Experience Ivan’s quick wit, beautiful timing and nuanced stories of family, class, freedom and social justice, reminding us both of our own humanity and inspiring us to change the world.

Ivan Coyote's visit was supported by Canada Council for the Arts and the International Festival of Authors.
