The Best Book Trailers We've Seen Lately

We love Katrina Onstad's list Books With a Sense of Place, and her new novel Everybody Has Everything has a place of its own: Toronto. The city is evoked also in the book's trailer, which will probably break your heart.


It is perhaps with books of poetry in particular that the book trailer really shines, and the trailer for Mark Lavorato's Wayworn Wooden Floors is no exception. Also check out his feature on our blog, Behind the Poem: "Abandoned Car".


We are really excited about Lorna Crozier's new book The Book of Marvels: A Compendium of Everyday Things. A great series of videos offers a glimpse of the marvels to come. This one in particular is an ode to coffee pots.


The book trailer for Tanis Rideout's Above All Things is really more of a mini-documentary about the book and its origins. (And don't miss Rideout's list of Canadian Adventure Books).


Sudden Death: The Incredible Story of the 1986 Swift Current Broncos by Leesa Culp, Bob Wilkie and Gregg Drinnan tells a tale of triumph after tragedy, though its book trailer makes clear that the whole story is more complicated than that.


In the latest of his slickly produced trailers, crime novelist Brad Smith previews his latest, Crow's Landing, about a fisherman who gets more than he bargained for.


And finally, travel to Paris with the enchanting trailer for C.S. Richardson's upcoming novel The Emperor of Paris, about an illiterate baker and unlikely romance.
