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​).

Did you get a new ereading device over the holidays? Seems like almost everyone we know did! Ergo, we've decided to have an ebook sale that will help you fill up your ereader (whether it be brand, spankin' new or lovingly covered with old flecks of food from years of use).

Congratulations, Margaret Christakos (Multitudes), David O'Meara (A Pretty Sight) and David Seymour (For Display Purposes Only)! Our amazing three poets have all been nominated for a ReLit Award in the category of Poetry.
