Coach House Books will be at the 2014 Indie Literary Market, presented by the Meet the Presses collective. The market gives the public an opportunity to meet dozens of Canadian literary presses and directly purchase publications that may not be readily available (or available at all!) in bookstores. This is Toronto’s only all-literary indie-publisher showcase!
The Coach House (HQ of Coach House Books and Coach House Printing) has a charmingly ramshackle coffee room. And for over 45 years, that room has served as a meeting space for writers, publishers, artists, readers, musicians and more. Throughout 2014, we've been using this space to host our Kaffeeklatsch series.
BLACK FRIDAY witnesses another trifecta of Puritan milestones. Join the editors, staff, and readers of The Puritan for our now annual "BLACK" event, taking place in the last week of November of each year.

On Tuesday, December 2, Ken Babstock will unleash On Malice in Vancouver's Book Warehouse (Main Street location). All are welcome, and this event is free to attend!
The new collection from Griffin- and Latner-winning Ken Babstock, On Malice is a bad mist, a digitized weather front trying to watch the surveillance from inside it, and to sit vigil at our convalescence as an alien witness.
The City of Ottawa announced on November 12 that for his stunning book of poetry, A Pretty Sight, he had won the 2014 Archibald Lampman Award and the Ottawa Book Award in the English fiction category. Congrats, David!
