The holidays are nearly here! And whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Christmukkah or Festivus, Coach House Books has what you need for the readers on your gift list. But as if finding the perfect gift weren't incentive enough, Coach House is holding a special Holiday Pyramid Scheme Sale this December!
Snare Books and Coach House Books present: Holiday Update
The launch of Update by Bill Kennedy and Darren Wershler
with special guest Jon Paul Fiorentino (Indexical Elegies)
Bill Kennedy and Darren Wershler will launch their new book, Update, on December 15 at the Magpie Tavern, as part of a special holiday event (that just so happens to be Jon Paul Fiorentino's birthday, as well). Come out and celebrate with us!
The holidays (Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Festivus) are just around the corner, and Coach House knows times are tight. So we're offering a holiday sale throughout December. It's a great way to please the book lovers in your life.
Why watch a holiday special on television when you can watch one live, on stage? Bestselling and Griffin Poetry Prize-winning poet Christian Bök will be in Toronto to celebrate the publication of Eunoia: The Upgraded Edition.
It has been a terribly exciting week of award nominations at the old Coach House!
