Chaudiere Books was created to produce books that engage the Ottawa-area literary community with the outside world, providing an important venue for first books as well as an important opportunity to showcase a wide array of literary talent. Since 2006, we have produced over a dozen titles of poetry and fiction with titles by Monty Reid, Pearl Pirie, Marcus McCann, John Newlove, Michael Bryson, Joe Blades, Meghan Jackson, Anne Le Dressay, Clare Latremouille, rob mclennan, and Nicholas Lea. In the fall of 2014, we’re excited to be publishing first poetry books by Amanda Earl and Roland Prevost, as well as a new collection by Lampman Award winner Monty Reid. Our 2015 array of titles includes exciting works by authors we’re itching to tell you about (hopefully soon) but includes Kemptville poet (by way of Vancouver) Chris Turnbull.
Chaudiere Books was relaunched by rob mclennan and new co-publisher Christine McNair in 2013. We’re asking for support in this, our challenging re-building year, to help us continue to produce important works by Canadian writers. As one of only a few small presses in Canada that focus (primarily) on poetry titles, we’re in a unique position to contribute to the literary community in Canada. Help us keep the presses rolling!
Perks include Chaudiere Books and above/ground press items old, new and forthcoming, and items such as a documentary on John Newlove and even a bookbinding by Christine McNair, books, chapbooks, out-of-print materials by John Newlove, David W. McFadden and rob mclennan,
