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.
It has been a terribly exciting week of award nominations at the old Coach House! This morning, the Canada Council for the Arts announced the 2014 Governor General's Literary Award finalists, and we're thrilled to say that Sean Dixon was nominated for his play A God in Need of Help, as was Rhonda Mullins for her translation of Élise Turcotte's Guyana.
Congratulations, André! His gorgeous novel, Pastoral, is a finalist for the esteemed Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Prize.
The Writers’ Trust of Canada revealed this morning the finalists for two major prizes for excellence in Canadian fiction: the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize and the Writers’ Trust/McClelland and Stewart Journey Prize. The announcement was made at Ben McNally Books.
