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.

The Coach House team is getting close to our favourite time of year (this is an egregious lie): inventory counting!
We don't want to do it; our warehouse frightens us. Ergo, we have decided that for the rest of July, all of our backlist titles will be on sale at a 25% discount. This includes all of our books published (in print and electronically) prior to our recent spring 2014 titles.
The Trouble with Brunch: Work, Class and the Pursuit of Leisure, the latest title in our Exploded Views series, is now available for purchase through the Coach House website. Award-winning writer and urbanist Shawn Micallef takes on the hallowed tradition of brunch, rethinking it as a way to look more closely at the nature of work itself and a catalyst for solidarity among the so-called creative class.
