Details

Acclaimed authors Sina Queyras (Expressway, Lemon Hound), Lisa Robertson (Lisa Robertson's Magenta Soul Whip, Occasional Work and Seven Walks from the Office for Soft Architecture) and Matthew Tierney (The Hayflick Limit, Full Speed through the Morning Dark) will read from their new books while guests can knock back some specialty Magenta Hayflick Express cocktails and pick up the new books, hot off the presses.The first 20 guests to the Coach House Books Poetry Soiree will receive a free Magenta Hayflick Express (delicious!).

Lisa Robertson's Magenta Soul Whip is the new book from acclaimed author Lisa Robertson. It compiles previously uncollected poems, essays, drafts, reports, treatises and laments from the past fifteen years, with musings on dogs, movie stars, broths, painting’s detritus, Latin and pillage. Edited by Elisa Sampedrin, Lisa Robertson's Magenta Soul Whip is the latest from an author who "makes intellect seductive" (Village Voice).

Lambda Literary Award winner and literary blogger Sina Queyras will launch Expressway, her new collection, which uses the modes of the Romantic poets to explore the world and effects of modern transportation and mobility-–how our reliance on the connecting networks of rubber and oil have led to a disconnect between communities and people.

The Hayflick Limit is the new collection from Toronto poet Matthew Tierney. The poems within concern themselves with the boundaries of the cosmic and subatomic, and cover subjects as varied as black holes and Warner Bros. cartoons, murky market economies, murkier quantum laws, Vincent Price, Molotov cocktails, seedless grapes, Area 51 and competing Theories of Everything.
