Canada Reads 2017
Join us as we discuss and debate the books on Canada Reads 2017 list. Share your thoughts and then as a group we choose Nakusp’s favorite book. No need to have read any of the books, we are delighted if you drop in just to listen. For those in attendance, there will be a draw for a beautiful sturdy zippered Canada Reads tote at the end of the discussion.
Five Canadians – an actor, a musician, a comedian, a performer and a veteran – will battle it out to become the next Canada Reads champion beginning March 27, 2017.
Over four days, the five defenders will bring their diverse perspectives to answer the question: What is the one book Canadians need now?
The contenders and their chosen books are:
- Chantal Kreviazuk defending The Right to Be Cold by Sheila Watt-Cloutier
- Humble The Poet defending Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis
- Tamara Taylor defending Company Town by Madeline Ashby
- Candy Palmater defending The Break by Katherena Vermette
- Jody Mitic defending Nostalgia by M.G. Vassanji
