Ding! Ding! Ding! Get set for the annual Coach House Books Wayzgoose, 2019 edition, the Soirée in the Alléy: Goose vs. Squirrel.

What's that you say? What's a Wayzgoose? A Wayzgoose is the traditional party given by a master printer to his employees at the summer's end, when the season of working by candlelight began. Our annual Wayzgoose is more of a bookish get-together when friends, authors, and readers can visit the Coach House, and tour the premises before you throw in the towel for the night.

This blow-by-blow with feature beer, wine, and hotdogs (and veggie dogs) for all and a free drink ticket with every book purchase. And a goose will box a squirrel. Maybe.

The Wayzegoose is intended to be welcoming and respectful to all. If you feel uncomfortable or need assistance please let a Coach House staff member know.

(Oh, and please avoid including the Wayzgoose in any event listings or public forums or else we'll get burnt (technically, the conditions of our liquor license won't allow us to advertise in this manner).
