Poet Shane Koyczan will appear in Mission on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Clarke Foundation Theatre (33700 Prentis Ave.).

An award-winning poet, author and performer, Koyczan gained global recognition when his influential, anti-bullying “To This Day Project” video went viral in 2013.

His first published collection, Visiting Hours, was the only work of poetry selected by both The Guardian and The Globe and Mail for their Best Books of the Year (2005). Koyczan performed the piece We Are More at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Koyczan is also the winner of the US Slam Poetry Championship and the Canadian Spoken Word Olympics.
