A True North Reading List


Canada has been home to some of the world's most talented, innovative, and respected writers.  Canadian literature is compelling, diverse, and distinct, from the spirited humour of Stephen Leacock to the genius of Margaret Atwood to authors of First Nations and immigrant descent sharing their stories.

To mark Canada Day, we're asking you to help us compile a reading list of books that help encapsulate/define/represent this country and what it means to be Canadian. Let us know in the comments below, and you'll be entered into a draw for a $50 gift card from a national bookstore. Submit your entry by Sunday, July 14.

NOTE: The CBC Books website is moving to a new commenting system over the next few weeks and you may experience difficulty posting a comment. If that's the case, and you want to enter our contest, please enter through our contest form!
