Just a couple of months to go before Canada Reads 2011 — here’s where you can find the five contenders on our shelves:
- The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis (description)
- The Birth House by Ami McKay (description)
- The Bone Cage by Angie Abdou (description)
- Essex County by Jeff Lemire (description)
- Unless by Carol Shields (description)
This is the first time Canada Reads has included a graphic novel! (Essex County). I think this must also be the first time it’s included a novel that was originally self-published (The Best Laid Plans).
