AFTER CANADA READS

acr

Welcome to our take on the Great Canadian Book Debate! We decided to get together some of our local literary luminaries and do a “shadow” Canada Reads. This a page for you to get to know the books and the book defenders for After Canada Reads. It’s also a place for you to share your thoughts on our theme, and maybe contribute some debate topics for the five novels we’ll be discussing. We look forward to your thoughts and suggestions. This very special podcast will be released on April 25th. Hope you will join us.

Our Theme: The best/most memorable/most inspirational female character in Canadian Literature.

Our books and their defenders:

Rianne Nicolai, a librarian with Edmonton Public Libraries, will be defending A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki.

    Can anything actually top Fifth Business?

    Great theme! Great books! Great panel! Can’t wait! I wonder if I’ll be able to fit Fifth Business in by then…

    Can’t wait to finally hear the discussion! Also, Kirt’s been bashing Canada Reads for years, so he better bring his A game 😉
