Book Clubs

Has your book club ever read a Coach House book? Had the pleasure of arguing about the reasons for Eugenia Ledoux's father's disappearance, of describing why Aline is your favourite member of the Lacuna Cabal Montreal Young Women's Book Club or practicing the Depression-era slang you learned from pickpocket Mona Kantor and her lover, Daily Star reporter Eli Morenz. By picking a Coach House title for your book club selection, you'll not only be reading compelling, Canadian-authored books, you'll also be able to discuss how a book is made, and the kind of paper it's printed on – Coach House is one of only three Canadian publishers that prints its books in house, and the virtual tour on our website can add a new dimension to your book club's literary discussions.

So grab a glass of wine, take a look through our book club titles and accompanying Q&As and let us know if anything strikes your fancy. We offer a 15% discount for book club purchases made through our website – email mail@chbooks.com to arrange for a bulk purchase or to discuss whether one of our authors could visit your next book club meeting!
