April 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
April 24, 2:00 pm, Napa Valley Writers Presents:
CWC – Napa Valley Writers invites you to a very special event: acclaimed author, actor, and narrator Peter Coyote in conversation with Kymberlie Ingalls.
After years as an award-winning actor and narrator, Peter Coyote has recently shifted his focus back to writing. Tongue of a Crow, published in 2021, is his first book of poetry. His poems take us on a whirlwind tour of an eclectic and exciting life as an actor and Zen Buddhist priest, meandering from love affairs to marriage to divorce to the Sixties to psychedelic spirituality and beyond. Written over several decades, they read as a collage, each piece distinct and contributing to a cohesive lyric narrative.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto Meet Buddha, an intersection of performance and Zen, was also published in 2021. His earlier works were best-selling memoirs, Sleeping Where I Fall and The Rainman’s Third Cure. He is working on another book, Vernacular Zen, which will be released in 2022.
An accomplished actor in more than 130 films, Peter Coyote is also a director, screenwriter, and narrator. He won an Emmy award for his narration of the ten-part PBS series The Pacific Century. He has also narrated eight Ken Burns documentaries, including The Roosevelts for which he won a second Emmy. Coyote is a politically engaged individual who champions a multitude of causes. He is also a Zen Buddhist priest as well as a songwriter, guitarist, and singer. Coyote lives in northern California.
Kymberlie Ingalls is a freelance editor, teacher, writing coach, blogger and author, native to the San Francisco Bay Area. The creator of the successful sites Writer of the Storm and Neuroticy = A Societal Madness, she began blogging in the late 90s, before it became the phenomenon that is prevalent today.
