Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin and This Is Not A Reading Series launch My Winnipeg (the book companion to his film of the same name) with Attack of the Winnipeg Hockey Moms. Maddin will first introduce clips of his favourite film mothers and then compete in a table hockey tournament with celebrity guests!
The New York Times style magazine profiles the 'hive of artsy industry' shaped by indie inns/venues The Gladstone Hotel and The Drake Hotel in Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood. Coach House makes an appearance as the press that elaborated the idea of 'Torontopia' in the uTOpia series:
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!
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Canada Council of the Arts, the Government of Canada through the Canada Book Fund, the Ontario Arts Council and the Ontario Media Development Corporation for our publishing activities.
