Ivan Coyote is a writer and storyteller and the author of thirteen books. Coyote has been a touring artist for 27 years now, and over the last two decades they have also performed for an estimated half a million youth on five continents. In 2017 Ivan was given an honorary Doctor Of Laws by Simon Fraser University for their writing and activism. 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.
A school visit by Ivan Coyote should be a curriculum requirement for every school in the province. Sylvia Knittel, Langley Fine Arts School
