Kick off the Canada Reads debate month with a free event at the Toronto Reference Library that will celebrate all of the finalists — including And the Birds Rained Down! The event will be hosted by Mary Ito, of CBC Radio One's Fresh Air.
Please join us to celebrate the publication of David Balzer’s new book Curationism: How Curating Took Over the Art World and Everything Else (Coach House Books, Pluto Press) at Cabinet Magazine’s event space in Brooklyn. The evening will include a discussion with David Balzer and Ben Davis, Orit Gat, David Everitt Howe and Zoë Salditch.
On Sunday, March 6, David Balzer will visit Red Emma's in Baltimore to lecture on his new book, Curationism: How Curating Took Over the Art World and Everything Else.
In this incisive study, Balzer travels through art history and around the globe to explore curation–where it began, how it functions in museums and galleries, and how it became a dominant mode of organizing and giving value to content.
The Inspection House is finally launching in Toronto! Join Emily & Tim on Tuesday, March 24 at Handlebar for a relaxed, casual evening of drinks and conversation as we celebrate their new book, The Inspection House: An Impertinent Field Guide to Modern Surveillance.
Mark your calendars: André Alexis will kick off the dog days of spring by launching his highly anticipated new novel, Fifteen Dogs, at Type Books the evening of April 1. He may even read a dog poem or two — in dog language, of course.
On Thursday, April 2, Brecken Hancock returns to Calgary to launch and read from her celebrated debut collection, Broom Broom. Hosted by Calgary's Poet Laureate, derek beaulieu, Brecken will be reading with Naomi K. Lewis and Rod Moody-Corbett. A book event to sweep readers off their feet, if there ever was one!
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.
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.
