Canada Reads: Annual Literary Jousting Up North

abstract:As popular as national hockey the Canada Reads book debate has become a national (literary) sport that pits a select panel in a series of broadcasts to promote the book title that they feel the whole country should read. Host Bill Richardson, veteran CBC broadcaster, print columnist and author of about a dozen books brings his wry wit and honed moderating skills to the sessions with the objective of involving the whole country in voting (and reading) not one, but perhaps several of the five books announced on the shortlist. It's a brilliant tactic to get Canada reading! Here are this year's books and the panelists who picked them. The debates run from February 28th to March 2nd and are broadcast 11:30 am and 7:30 pm EST. See how many books you can plow through, and don't forget to cast your vote.
