The morning of April 1, the League of Canadian Poets announced its shortlists for the 2010 Pat Lowther and Gerald Lampert Memorial Awards, and Coach House Books published one title on each distinguished list.
Kate Hall's debut collection The Certainty Dream was shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Award. The Lampert, given in the memory of arts administrator Gerald Lampert, recognizes the best first book of poetry published by a Canadian in the preceding year.
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.
