Canada Reads 2013

The debates for Canada Reads 2013 will take place on February 11th – 14th; personally I always try my best to get all of the books read prior so I can argue along…in the store, of course.  So don’t be alarmed if you happen to wander past and witness me yelling at an empty store, it’s all part of the wonder that is Canada Reads.

Anyways, the panel and book selections have been announced, you can check out the Canada Reads homepage for all kinds of interviews and excerpts.  I just wanted to let everyone know that we have all 5 books in stock and (hint, hint) any one would make a wonderful gift.  So without further ado here’s the list:

Away by Jane Urquhart defended by Charlotte Gray
The Age of Hope
by David Bergen defended by Ron MacLean
Two Solitudes by Hugh MacLennan defended by Jay Baruchel
February by Lisa Moore defended by Trent McClellan
Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese defended by Carol Huynh

Of course for those of you that prefer the visual here they are:

  1. Two Solitudes! I’m curious about how this novel has held up. I remember reading it decades ago when separatism was new and exciting (for some). Wonder how it speaks to our current social political realities now.
