Care Of: Ivan Coyote in Conversation with Susan G. Cole

August 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Presented as part of the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival in partnership with Hillside Festival.

Writer and performer Ivan Coyote has spent decades on the road, telling stories around the world. For years, Ivan has kept a file of the most special communications received from readers and audience members—letters, Facebook messages, emails, soggy handwritten notes tucked under the windshield wiper of their truck after a gig. Then came Spring, 2020, and, like artists everywhere, Coyote was grounded by the pandemic, all their planned events cancelled. The energy of a live audience, a performer’s lifeblood, was suddenly gone. But with this loss came an opportunity for a different kind of connection. Those letters that had long piled up could finally begin to be answered.

EMWF’s August Book Club pick, Care Of, is an affirming and joyous reflection on many of the themes central to Coyote’s celebrated work—compassion and empathy, family fragility, non-binary and Trans identity, and the unending beauty of simply being alive, a giant love letter to the idea of human connection, and the power of truly listening to each other.

Join Ivan Coyote for a lively, intimate and heartful conversation with Susan G. Cole. This event includes closed captioning.
