Canada Reads Event
I attended a Canada Reads event last week at the Toronto Reference Library hosted by Mary Ito (host of Fresh Air on the CBC). I’ve got three of the books and am making my way through them. Click on the link to see this year’s contenders: http://www.cbc.ca/books/canadareads2015/
Launched in 2001, CANADA READS is CBC’s annual battle of the books, where five Canadian personalities each select a book they believe all Canadians should read. They defend their chosen title in a series of debates, and the books are eliminated one by one until a winner is declared. The debates air on CBC Radio One, CBC-TV, documentaryand are live streamed at CBCBooks.ca.
