Koyama Press Visits Doug Wright Park

Posted on May 10, 2013 in Blog


Ahead of this weekend’s TCAF and Doug Wright Awards, we decided to take the three Koyama Press titles nominated for Best Book—Lose #4 by Michael DeForge, By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse Jacobs and Wax Cross by Tin Can Forest—on a field trip to Doug Wright Park. Located in Burlington, Ontario, which was Wright’s home from the early 1960s until his death in 1983, the park features a Wright-inspired playground replete with Nipper and his famous Hot Rod!
