David Balzer, the acclaimed Canadian art critic, and Margaux Williamson, the acclaimed Canadian painter, will chat with one another about their new books at the Toronto Reference Library's Hinton Learning Theatre on Tuesday, May 26. They will also discuss art, art books, curation, the relationship between artist, curator and popular culture, and if 'curation' itself still holds any value.
On Wednesday, May 20, you're invited to join us for the launch of The Ward: The Life and Loss of Toronto's First Immigrant Neighbourhood(eds. John Lorinc, Michael McClelland, Ellen Scheinberg and Tatum Taylor) at the Church of the Holy Trinity (10 Trinity Square), one of the few remaining pieces of Toronto's first immigrant enclave. This highly anticipated city-centric book tells the story of the growth and destruction of Toronto's first 'priority neighbourhood.'
This morning at Coach House we're all giving Brecken Hancock a great big group hug and want you all to join us in congratulating her on her big win last night.

The Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts has awarded Coach House's own Jordan Tannahill the 36th Annual Dora Mavor Moore Award, a prize that celebrates excellence in Toronto theatre, dance and opera.
