The League of Canadian Poets​ announced the 2015 shortlists for the Raymond Souster Award the Gerald Lampert and Pat Lowther Memorial Awards this morning, and we are thrilled to announce that three Coach House Books authors have received a total of four nominations!

Coffee Room

Have you heard the news? Coach House is starting a book club! We're calling it — get ready — the Coach House Book Club. 

Why are we starting a book club, you ask? Well, we feel this isn't so much a book club as it is a gathering of the Coach House community and those who want to get to know their favourite author in an informal, relaxed setting — but just calling it a 'book club' seemed like the clearest way of encapsulating all of that.

April is National Poetry Month, our favourite month of the year! (Whatever, T.S. Eliot.)

Events

Come meet us at the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair (April 18-19), where we'll be sharing a table with our friends at Invisible Publishing! We'll have a selection of both new titles (including our brand new Spring poetry!) and backlist sweethearts for sale. Admission is free and the event is open to the public!

Once a month, on (or around) the third Sunday of the month, Hazel and Jay MillAr of BookThug open their home to writers and readers for their cozy House Readings Series (HIJ); following the salon style reading, there will be a discussion and author Q&A.

Join UDP and CHB for a reading and conversation with Ken Babstock, Corina Copp, Ben Fama, and Sina Queyras at Type Books in Toronto! Kyle Buckley will host.

Coach House is pleased to be attending the 2015 Northeast Modern Language Association Convention this April 30-May 3rd at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.
