Coach House Open House

I love Coach House. They keep publishing books I really want to buy and then love reading, which I think is a mark of achievement for an independent press. Tonight we attended the Coach House Open House tonight over on bpNichol Lane, and we had more fun than you think we would have standing around a parking lot. And not just because there were food and bevvies, or because there was a tour and a chance to see the printing press in action. And not just because we got to see Crissy Calhoun, Ivor Tossell and Julie Wilson either. And not even because we got take advantage of the book sale. (I bought The Girls Who Saw Everything.) But I would probably say that the fun was most definitely a culmination of all these things.

    Ahhh, bpNichol Lane… brings the memories back to the old Campus Co-op. Good times circa 2000/01.
    That alley was my cut through from campus to my place on Huron Street…. loved the inscriptions on the pavement as well.
