Book Launches

The Sleepworker launch party

John is a poet.
Andy is an artist.
You like to read.
We like to party.

Head to Type Books for a Warhol-inspired launch party to celebrate the release of the world-wide English debut translation of Cyrille Martinez’s The Sleepworker, translated by Joseph Patrick Stancil.

In addition to the usual Coach House party fun, there will a book signing by Joseph Patrick and possibly a re-creation of Warhol’s Sleep. So come in your pajamas, grab a drink, take a nap, and channel your inner artist-poet.

Book launch and party for Sophrosyne by Marianne Apostolides

To celebrate the publication of Sophrosyne by Marianne Apostolides, BookThug is throwing a big party with a gathering of artists whose work illustrates the book and its themes.

Juno-nominated musicians Jayne Brown, Sophia Grigoriadis, and Maryem Tollar will perform their gorgeous mix of Middle Eastern music, playing alongside belly dancer/musician Roula Said. In addition, the artwork of Noriko Maeda will add a Japanese flavour to the evening. Noriko’s original calligraphy appears throughout the book; it helped to shape one of the novel’s primary characters.
