November 18 at Clinton's (693 Bloor Street West), the Art Bar poetry series presents award-winning poet Margaret Christakos reading from her new collection, What Stirs, alongside poets David Clink and Maurice Mierau.
In commemoration of Coach House's 50th Anniversary this year, publisher Stan Bevington responded to his sister's plea to clean house - and donated all 212 pristine books he had been sending to his mother since 1965 to the University of Alberta's Bruce Peel Special Collections Library.
This morning at Coach House we're all giving Brecken Hancock a great big group hug and want you all to join us in congratulating her on her big win last night. Her first poetry collection, Broom Broom, won the 2015 Language Trillium Book Award for Poetry (English Language), which comes with a $10,000 cash prize.
The Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts has awarded Coach House's own Jordan Tannahill the 36th Annual Dora Mavor Moore Award, a prize that celebrates excellence in Toronto theatre, dance and opera. The ceremony was held Monday evening (June 22nd) at the Harbourfront Centre, where 50 prizes in total were awarded to members of Toronto's vibrant performing arts scene.
