Fresh Pressed: The Coach House Books Spring Launch

Thursday April 5th at 7:30 pm

This spring, we’re turning up the juice. The infamous Coach House presses are working overtime to produce the 100 percent pure, fresh literature you’ve come to expect from us. Come to our launch to sip the fruits of our labour, which we hope will appeal.

Readings from:
Adam Dickinson (ANATOMIC)
Kelli Korducki (HARD TO DO: THE SURPRISING, FEMINIST HISTORY OF BREAKING UP)
Amy Nostbakken & Norah Sadava (MOUTHPIECE)
Rhonda Mullins (LITTLE BEAST)
Jason Stefanik (NIGHT BECAME YEARS)
Aaron Tucker (Y: OPPENHEIMER, HORSEMAN OF LOS ALAMOS) &
Suzanne Zelazo (LANCES ALL ALIKE)

This venue is physically accessible and has gender neutral washrooms.
Our crop of new fiction is sweet, no matter how you squeeze it. Y: Oppenheimer, Horseman of Los Alamos imagines the pulpier
parts of Oppenheimer’s life – his love of women and art – to produce a nuanced portrait of the Father of the Atomic Bomb.
Little Beast is a modern fairy tale about a bearded girl forced to live amongst the trees.

Meanwhile, the poetry of the season is particularly fleshy. A poet goes beneath his skin in Anatomic to write poems inspired
by lab results on his body. Lances All Alike slices splices the poetry of Mina Loy and Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven.
While the poems are grown of the Elizabethan canting language, the seeds of Night Became Years are planted in Winnipeg’s
North End.

Our previously announced titles certainly haven’t soured. Hard To Do: The Surprising, Feminist History of Breaking Up by Kelli Korducki and Mouthpiece by Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava are as fresh as when we first announced them.

Pretty sweet, eh?
