We're feeling pretty electric about the launch of All Lit Up, the new online hub for discovering, buying and collecting Canadian literature.

Join us at the inaugural High Park Reading Festival in Toronto on Saturday, September 6th! A gaggle of our poets (that's the collective noun, right?) will be reading.

If you were hollan-dazed and missed The Trouble with Brunch author Shawn Micallef on CBC Radio's Q last week, fear not! You can listen to the episode online.

Cinema of the Present

Lisa Robertson's Cinema of the Present is featured in Publishers Weekly's Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2014! The list is picked by PW's reviews editors and pulled from a Fall Announcements issue with more than 14,000 titles. To see what other new releases are being buzzed about, you can have a look at the rest of the list here.

Coffee Room

Coach House is watching you. (We’re also declassifying a cache of stealthy Fall titles.)

Geoff Pevere, author of Gods of the Hammer: The Teenage Head Story, has curated a playlist of seventeen songs containing essential tracks by Teenage Head as well as by bands that influenced their high-energy style. Read Geoff's annotations while you listen and (re)discover how Teenage Head is 'capable of sweetening and shredding your eardrums at the same time.'

The Coach House (HQ of Coach House Books and Coach House Printing) has a charmingly ramshackle coffee room. And for over 45 years, that room has served as a meeting space for writers, publishers, artists, readers, musicians and more. It's a pretty informal space with some very informal gatherings, but throughout 2014, the Coach House is hosting a monthly Kaffeeklatsch.

Events

On Thursday, September 4, you're invited to our Wayzgoose! It'll take your breath away.
