Ivan E. Coyote - Carol Shields Writer-in-Residence

Ivan E. Coyote is the UWinnipeg's sixth Carol Shields Writer-in-Residence. This multi-talented author will be featured at two upcoming events: 
her inaugural reading
Thursday, Jan 27 at 7:30 pm
her Carol Shields Distinguished Lecture 
Wednesday, Mar 16 at 7:30 pm

Both will be at University of Winnipeg, Convocation Hall, 515 Portage Avenue.

Both events are free and open to the public.

Convocation Hall is an accessible venue - please enter through Manitoba Hall skywalk system for stair-free access.

Ivan Coyote was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and now makes her home in Vancouver. The Department of English at UW is proud to host her for four months, thanks to the generosity of MAWA, the UW's Institute for Women and Gender Studies, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Carol Shields family.

Ivan is an award-winning author of six collections of short stories, one novel, three CDs, and four short films. 
Her latest book is the short story collection Missed Her
A superb story-teller and performer, Ivan works in innovative ways with musicians and other artists to bring her stories alive.

She is also a gifted teacher of creative writing who has mentored writers at Capilano College, Carleton University, and the Vancouver Public Library.  
She has designed cross-generational workshops for families and memoir writing classes for seniors.  She promotes oral history as a way of learning where we come from and how to shape our futures.

Ivan Coyote will have an office in the UW English Department and will be available to meet with members of the community for private consultations, in addition to her public events.

Solution to the scheduling dilemma - You CAN see both Ivan Coyote and Sidney Eve Matrix!

So we know that this jam-packed January has been perplexing all of y'all.
On the 27 HOW can I be at both Ivan Coyote's inaugural talk at UW AND the launch of Fairy Tale Films with Sidney Eve Matrix and Pauline Greenhill at McNally when they are at the EXACT same time??  
Well here's a solution - you can do BOTH! 
Ivan on the 27, and Sidney Eve with Pauline on the 28 - see you there!

Freud, Film Noir, and Fairy Tales:  Fritz Lang's The Secret Beyond the Door

A FREE public talk by Sidney Eve Matrix - 1:30 to 2:30, 3M67, Friday, January 28.
