CBC Radio 3 runs a monthly book club, and while they typically tackle nonfiction books on musicians and musical genres, in August, they've turned their sights on a novel written by a musician: Maintenance by Rob Benvie.
The CBC Book Club is celebrating Words & Music throughout March. And as part of the month-long event, they're asked eight writers to tell them what piece of music (song, artist, album or musical) has had the greatest impact on their writing.
We've added a book clubs section to our website, to help you and your book club sort through Coach House novels for possible book club selections. When you select a Coach House title, you'll not only be reading compelling, Canadian-authored books, you'll also be able to discuss how the book was made, as Coach House is one of only three Canadian publishers to print its books in house!
It has been a terribly exciting week of award nominations at the old Coach House! This morning, the Canada Council for the Arts announced the 2014 Governor General's Literary Award finalists, and we're thrilled to say that Sean Dixon was nominated for his play A God in Need of Help, as was Rhonda Mullins for her translation of Élise Turcotte's Guyana.
Congratulations, André! His gorgeous novel, Pastoral, is a finalist for the esteemed Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Prize.
The Writers’ Trust of Canada revealed this morning the finalists for two major prizes for excellence in Canadian fiction: the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize and the Writers’ Trust/McClelland and Stewart Journey Prize. The announcement was made at Ben McNally Books.
