Coach House author Michael Blouin (Chase and Haven) has been shortlisted for a CBC Literary Award for his poem 'fidelity.' Congratulations to all shortlisted authors!

Jeramy Dodds (Crabwise to the Hounds) was interviewed in the Fall 2009 issue of CV2:

Starting Wednesday, March 10, you can hear from the man who started it all at the AGO. In March, Coach House Press founder and master printer Stan Bevington will begin an ongoing series of weekly conversations at Toronto's Art Gallery of Ontario. As part of the AGO's innovative exhibit, 'Canadian Art in the 1960s and 1970s through the lens of Coach House Press,' Bevington will take up residence in the exhibit space every Wednesday night, between 7 and 8 p.m.

March is a special month. Not only was it the first month in the ancient Roman calendar, it is also host to two — count 'em, two — featured titles on the Coach House website: Rachel Zolf's Neighbour Procedure and Carla Gunn's Amphibian!

Judith Fitzgerald of The Globe and Mail's In Other Words has posted a list of 'the top dozen single-author single-volume works published during The Doughty Noughties (1999-2009) in the order of votes received for each,' and Susan Holbrook's Joy Is So Exhausting is on it!

In her latest post to the Poetry Foundation blog, Sina Queyras credits Prismatic Publics with 'igniting discussion, inspiring new work, and ... ultimately creating a road map for the work to carry on.'

The Commonwealth Writers' Prize shortlist is out, and Carla Gunn's Amphibian has been nominated for Best First Book of Canada and the Caribbean!

Gunn was recently interviewed by both CBC Shift and The Mark to discuss her nomination, her book, and her wonderful protagonist Phineas William Walsh.

Open Book: Toronto has teamed up with Coach House Books to present an online and very Toronto cooking series featuring contributors from The Edible City: Toronto's Food from Farm to Fork.

Toronto authors Kathryn Borel Jr., Rea McNamara (with her cousin Kiel Brathwaite) and Kat Gligorijevic are the stars of this hugely charming and informative series, showing us how to make Apple-Cornbread-Sausage Stuffing, Roti and the Toronto Cocktail, respectively.

The shortlist has been posted for the CBC Literary Awards, and two Coach House authors are on the list!
