On Friday, July 4th, the shortlist for the ReLit Awards were announced, and we are delighted to report that two Coach House titles have been shortlisted -- one in the category of poetry and one in the category of novel.
Congratulations to David McGimpsey (Sitcom, shortlisted in the poetry category) and Andrew Wedderburn (The Milk Chicken Bomb, shortlisted in the novel category)!
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.
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.
