Congratulations, Jocelyne and Rhonda!

Coach House Books is thrilled to announce that And the Birds Rained Down by Jocelyne Saucier (translated by Rhonda Mullins) will be championed by Martha Wainwright (!) in this year's Canada Reads competition. The announcement was made this morning on CBC's Radio Q (listen to the full audio​).

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!

Coffee Room

Now available: our new catalogue, featuring nine titles taking flight Spring 2015, and cover art by Fiona Smyth.

'Since its launch in November 2007, the A B Series has distinguished itself as an indispensable presenter of musical and literary events. With its innovative and entertaining productions, it has drawn diverse audiences and created new energy in Ottawa's cultural life.' (From the A B website.)
