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:
No matter what you celebrate – Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwaanza, Raven-Symoné's birthday – or whether you celebrate nothing at all, everybody loves a good deal. And this December, Coach House has a great holiday deal for you. All our books (print, electronic, old and new) are 25% off the usual retail price, and we'll waive any shipping fees. That's right! It's like we're like Amazon but we pay taxes! So if you know of someone who'd love the gift of a Coach House book, now's your chance to win brownie points while saving money, with our Ludi-crèche Holiday Sale!
Want to purchase some Coach House gifts for the holidays, but need to browse? This December, in addition to the many fine booksellers that stock our titles, Torontonians can visit the ToronTOpia Pop-up Store for their Coach House needs.
