Ivan Coyote
We conclude the 2019 Fall Edition with an unforgettable storytelling performance. Ivan Coyote is one of North America’s preeminent storytellers, and the author, co-author, or co-editor of eleven previous books.
 
In their latest book, Rebent Sinner, Ivan takes on the patriarchy and the political, as well as the intimate and the personal in these beguiling and revealing stories of what it means to be trans and non-binary today, at a time in their life when they must carry the burden of heartbreaking history with them, while combatting those who would misgender them or deny their very existence. 
 
These stories span thirty years of tackling TERFs, legislators, and bathroom police, sure, but there is joy and pleasure and triumph to be found here too, as Ivan pays homage to personal heroes like the late Leslie Feinberg while gently guiding younger trans folk to prove to themselves that there is a way out of the darkness.
 
Join us for an evening with an accomplished artist whose mastery always astounds.
