At a ceremony held July 23 in Toronto, Coach House Books was awarded the inaugural Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts for Arts Organizations.
The award, administered by the Ontario Arts Council, recognizes outstanding achievement in the professional arts by an individual or a group. Coach House shared the night with the winner in the individual artist category, acclaimed Ottawa-based sculptor and installation artist Ron Noganosh.
Publisher Stan Bevington and Senior Editor Alana Wilcox accepted the award on behalf of Coach House. Alana expressed gratitude to the Ministry of Culture, the Premier’s Office, the Ontario Arts Council and the many, many outstanding writers, editors and artists that have worked with the press over the years.
