In advance of a multi-author book launch at Canmore's Communitea Cafe, the Banff Crag & Canyon interviewed the three authors, Steven Ross Smith, Rosemary Nixon and our very own Suzette Mayr, on April 19, 2011:
On Wednesday, April 20, Coach House Books, Goose Lane Editions and Turnstone Press will present a three-part book launch of some of the spring's most anticipated books at Canmore's Communitea Cafe (1001 6th Avenue).
This morning at Coach House we're all giving Brecken Hancock a great big group hug and want you all to join us in congratulating her on her big win last night. Her first poetry collection, Broom Broom, won the 2015 Language Trillium Book Award for Poetry (English Language), which comes with a $10,000 cash prize.
The Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts has awarded Coach House's own Jordan Tannahill the 36th Annual Dora Mavor Moore Award, a prize that celebrates excellence in Toronto theatre, dance and opera. The ceremony was held Monday evening (June 22nd) at the Harbourfront Centre, where 50 prizes in total were awarded to members of Toronto's vibrant performing arts scene.
Since our founding in 1965, Coach House has been committed to printing and publishing innovative poetry of the highest quality. With that mandate in mind, we want to make sure we're doing all that we can to share our poets' work with you!
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Canada Council of the Arts, the Government of Canada through the Canada Book Fund, the Ontario Arts Council and the Ontario Media Development Corporation for our publishing activities.
