Canada Reads takes place March 16-19, 2015. Martha Wainbright will be defending Jocelyne Saucier's And the Birds Rained Down (tr. Rhonda Mullins); we'll be in the audience cheering her on! Here's how you can tune in:
The Literary Translators' Association of Canada (LTAC) will host their next Literary Translation Workshop on Tuesday, March 10. Rhonda Mullins will lead the workshop, entitled 'The Trouble with Translation.'
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.
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.
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. Her first poetry collection, Broom Broom, won the 2015 Language Trillium Book Award for Poetry (English Language), which comes with a $10,000 cash prize.
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. The ceremony was held Monday evening (June 22nd) at the Harbourfront Centre, where 50 prizes in total were awarded to members of Toronto's vibrant performing arts scene.
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.
