On Tuesday, July 7, the Scream Festival hosts a panel on media technology and the death of the book. Four literary pioneers will each deliver a manifesto on the book, including Coach House authors Margaret Christakos (What Stirs) and Jay MillAr (Mycological Studies) and Coach House web editor Bill Kennedy (Apostrophe).
Eye Weekly's Damian Rogers reports on the Griffin Poetry Prize — now in its ninth year — and interviews, among others, Coach House senior editor Alana Wilcox and web editor Bill Kennedy. The article covers the origins of the Griffin Trust and founder Scott Griffin's vision for its future.
Regardless of what you'll be celebrating this month — CHristmas, Festivus, Hanukkah, Kwaanza, time off from work, Ricky Martin's birthday — there is one thing we all have in common: everyone is expected to spend money. So heck, we thought we'd get into the holiday $pirit with some pretty sweet holiday deals:
For the month of December 2014, we're letting you pick 3 Exploded Views books for $30. Whether you want to take a closer look at the world of comics or a culture consumed by Eggs Benedict, reflect on Teenage Head's quest for punk rock success or the too-short life of Toronto artist and civic hero Will Munro, or consider the curation craze or modern spectres of the Panopticon, the current titles will appeal to your diverse and discerning cultural tastes.
The Exploded Views Commitment makes a great gift for a friend or loved one, but if you'd rather keep them all for yourself, we promise not to tell.
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.
