June is LGBTQ Pride Month, and you know Coach House (unlike some mayors) is keen to celebrate that fact. Coach House has published some of Canada's finest queer writers for decades, but our June Marriage Equality Sale is a little bit different. Instead of focusing on our gay and lesbian writers, we're celebrating marriage equality.
It's June, which means it's also time for LGBTQ pride! And at Coach House, we couldn't be prouder to tell you that our June online sale features all our titles that involve LGBTQ themes at 20% off the cover price for all of June in our probably inappropriately titled Big Gay Sale! We hate to be crassly commercial about Pride -- it's an important celebration of the gay-pride movement -- but we also like to combine our politics with book discounts.

Have you heard the news? Coach House is starting a book club! We're calling it — get ready — the Coach House Book Club.
Why are we starting a book club, you ask? Well, we feel this isn't so much a book club as it is a gathering of the Coach House community and those who want to get to know their favourite author in an informal, relaxed setting — but just calling it a 'book club' seemed like the clearest way of encapsulating all of that.
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.
