Join us for the next installment of Coyote Tales on October 19th at 7:30 pm at the center for the Arts at Kayenta. Guest storytellers will include NPR correspondent Scott Carrier and KUER news director Andy Becker.

Coyote Tales are live, open-mic style storytelling events with amateur and experienced storytellers. Each event has a theme, on which stories are to be based. Potential storytellers may address that theme in any way they choose. Prior to the event, storytellers craft their true, on-theme story, practice the telling (5 minutes or less), work on eliminating excess detail to nail the perfect ending. When the doors open, potential storytellers put their name in the hat in hopes of being chosen to share their story. If chosen, the storyteller takes the stage to delight the audience. At the end of the evening, the audience votes for their favorite story. Stories must be true, told live, within the given time frame (5 minutes). They must be told without notes, props, or accompaniment.

The theme for this evening's stories is: Right place, right time. Prepare a 5 minute story about what antics transpired just because you were in the right place at the right time. Have you received benefit from circumstance rather than merit? Have you ever been in an ideal position to take advantage of an unexpected opportunity? A life-changing encounter just because you were standing right there?

Tickets are $20. To purchase tickets, please visit:
