Coach House Books held its annual Wayzgoose get-together on Sep. 3, and the turnout was excellent, as you can see from the pics below (provided by photographer Gary Mo). This year’s celebration was extra merry, as it was the first Wayzgoose at which Coach House could proudly proclaim ownership of the building it has occupied all these many years.

Michael Ondaatje pays tribute to his old publisher, while Stuart Ross minds the book table.
The assembled revellers pray for the continued health of small presses. (Or maybe they’re just applauding a speaker.)
