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.

Reviewing Christian Bök's The Xenotext: Book 1 for American Scientist, Michael Leong calls the book 'at once rigorously scientific and rigorously literary.' He goes on to write that 'Bök's work is an important bridge not only between conservative formalists and cutting-edge conceptualists but between poetic and scientific communities.
Join us for an evening of outstanding readings at Unnameable Books with Ken Sparling (This Poem is a House), Rebecca Schiff (The Bed Moved), Susan Daitch (The Lost Civilization of Suolucidir) and John Domini (Movieola!).
