Neither, Nor: How to Circumnavigate the Gender Binary in Seven Thousand Easy Steps

Ivan Coyote is a writer, storyteller, musician and educator. Ivan is the author of eleven books, and the creator of three albums, four short films, and a renowned live performer. Ivan has been the writer in residence at Carleton, Western, the University of Winnipeg, and the Vancouver Public Library, and has lectured at universities and colleges across the continent. Their books include Loose End, Boys Like Her, Missed Her, Gender Failure, and the soon to be released Tomboy Survival Guide.

Ivan often grapples with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity in their work, as well as topics such as family, class, social justice and queer liberation, but always with a generous heart, a quick wit, and the nuanced and finely-honed timing of a gifted raconteur. Ivan's stories remind of us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world.
