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!

September 30th, 2014 marks the 70th birthday of bpNichol, born Barrie Phillip Nichol in Vancouver, British Columbia. His writing is engaged with what he called ‘borderblur’: in his lifetime he wrote (somewhere between) poetry, novels, short fiction, children’s books, musical scores, comic book art, collage/assemblage, and computer texts.
