Canada Reads Top 10

Every year the CBC chooses Important Canadian Books and holds for a national read-along, with a champion assigned to each book who argues for its import and artistry. The new Top 10 shorter-list has been announced, based on “the one book that could change Canada.” It’s one of these:

Michael Ondaatje’s Anil’s Ghost; Kathleen Winter’s Annabel; Rawi Hage’s Cockroach; Esi Edugyan’s Half-Blood Blues;  Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother; Louis Hamelin’s October 1970; Joseph Boyden’s The Orenda; Gil Courtemanche’s A Sunday At The Pool In Kigali; Shauna Singh Baldwin’s What The Body Remembers; and Margaret Atwood’s The Year Of The Flood. The library has many of these — check the adult fiction shelves, and new arrivals.

The final Canada Reads choices will be announced at the end of the month. You can follow along at
