Canada Reads

CBC is having their annual Canada Reads event, with the debates airing in March. As usual, there are five books in contention, and each one has a “defender” — this year’s defenders include Avi Lewis and Nicholas Campbell (of Da Vinci’s Inquest). If you’d like to read the books, they’re all available at Laidlaw Library:

The Book of Negroes, by Lawrence Hill

The Fat Woman Next Door Is Pregnant, by Michel Tremblay

Fruit, by Brian Francis

Mercy Among the Children, by David Adams Richards

The Outlander, by Gil Adamson
