Hot Goose Lane Titles and UTP Special

Want to take advantage of the UTP Covid special? All you need 20 per publisher to get 50%, and right now that’s easy with Goose Lane, the oldest indie publisher in Canada. Just take a look at the notes below!

Here is the Goose Lane catalogue for fall if you’d like to look again. Orders can come to me for the 50% special, and minimum 20 books please.

Notes on key titles:

Moving the Museum


This is a feature of indigenous art at the AGO, but don’t think it is just artists from Ontario. The hottest indigenous artists from across Canada are in here — I know one is a Haida artist but it hasn’t been finalized. There will be lots of Canada-wide content, and we are expecting big national media on this so be sure to have it on order.

Peace by Chocolate


This one has just launched, so watch for national media interest. Goose Lane is pushing this one out to a lot of publicity outlets, and the author has connections across Canada.

This is the refugee family that Trudeau lauded at the UN as a model success story. Their chocolates are sold at Thrifty’s, Save On, and other western grocery chains and are very distinctive in their packaging. This is a feel-good business and family story. As an added tidbit, there is a video of Tareq Hadhad announcing the release of Peace by Chocolate: The Hadhad Family’s Remarkable Journey from Syria to Canada.

A Like Vision: The Group of Seven & Tom Thomson


From Dejardin, Ian A.C, releasing November 3, 2020, this is going to be THE new and most updated Group of Seven book on the market, like nothing published in decades. It will be a BIG title for Christmas, so please be sure to place it in a great location in the store!

Like Rum-Drunk Angels


Alberta take note! This is a smart novel by Tyler Enfield, a “western in a puzzle box” and a wonderful uproarious read!
