Great news: David O'Meara's A Pretty Sight is a finalist for the Archibald Lampman Award! Congrats, David!

Each year, Arc Poetry Magazine honours Ottawa poets. Arc is proud to present the three 2014 finalists for the Archibald Lampman Award for the outstanding book of poetry by a National-Capital area author. Also featured are winners of the Brebner Prize competition, which honours emerging poets in the Ottawa area. The readings will take place at Pressed, 750 Gladstone Ave, Ottawa, Ontario at 7:30pm on Thursday, October 9.

Join us at the inaugural High Park Reading Festival in Toronto on Saturday, September 6th! A gaggle of our poets (that's the collective noun, right?) will be reading.

We're feeling pretty electric about the launch of All Lit Up, the new online hub for discovering, buying and collecting Canadian literature.

We have good news for lonely walls: Canadian artist duo Hadley+Maxwell have produced a beautiful set of eight posters inspired by Lisa Robertson's Cinema of the Present. We're extending the Cinema love by offering the whole set of eight posters for $40

Wow. Much merCH. Such deals.


If you were hollan-dazed and missed The Trouble with Brunch author Shawn Micallef on CBC Radio's Q last week, fear not! You can listen to the episode online.

There's an entire world of literature to be read, and thank goodness for the brilliant translators who make that world available to us. In anticipation of The Sleepworker's October release, all of our currently available French-to-English titles will be discounted on our website by 40% (!) until the end of August.

Cinema of the Present

Lisa Robertson's Cinema of the Present is featured in Publishers Weekly's Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2014! The list is picked by PW's reviews editors and pulled from a Fall Announcements issue with more than 14,000 titles. To see what other new releases are being buzzed about, you can have a look at the rest of the list here.

We're partnering with BitLit to bring you a free ebook with the purchase of the print book!

The Coach House team is getting close to our favourite time of year (this is an egregious lie): inventory counting!

We don't want to do it; our warehouse frightens us. Ergo, we have decided that for the rest of July, all of our backlist titles will be on sale at a 25% discount. This includes all of our books published (in print and electronically) prior to our recent spring 2014 titles.
