Canada Reads

Collection by Cape Breton Regional Library


Canada Reads is an annual "battle of the books" competition organized and broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Five Canadian personalities each select a book they want Canadians to read and defend their chosen title in a series of debates aired on TV and radio. At the end of each debate, the panelists vote one title out, and books are eliminated one by one until a winner is declared. Here are contenders, finalists and winners from past Canada Reads competitions.
