For this week’s “Story Saturday” I wanted to discuss Canada Reads 2009. I heard about this from my monthly “Books and Breakfast” group at the local library. Basically, Canada Reads is a week-long show that has five celebrity panelists defend their favourite Canadian work of fiction. Day by day, books are voted off the list, until one panelist triumphs with the book for Canada to read this year. I am going to make an effort to read all five of the titles this year (I have already read one and enjoyed it).
The half-hour debates will air on CBC Radio One from March 2 to March 6, 2009 at 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. and will be available online or via podcast.
I know I am going to tune in!
