Coach House author Matthew Tierney is among the winners of the 2013 Trillium Book Awards, Ontario’s prestigious literature awards. Tierney received the Trillium Book Award for Poetry in the English Language category, which carries a $10,000 prize for his third poetry collection, Probably Inevitable.
June is LGBTQ Pride Month, and you know Coach House (unlike some mayors) is keen to celebrate that fact. Coach House has published some of Canada's finest queer writers for decades, but our June Marriage Equality Sale is a little bit different. Instead of focusing on our gay and lesbian writers, we're celebrating marriage equality.
