Last week, we looked at Terry Fallis's The Best Laid Plans here on the Canada Reads site. This week, we're moving from the political ring to the athletics arena, as we turn our attention to Angie Abodu's The Bone Cage. Angie will write about how she embraced having her book labelled "sports lit," we'll talk to the designer and editor of her book, we'll hold a live chat with Angie on January 20, and we'll talk with Georges Laraque, the former NHL enforcer, about taking on the challenge of trying to make The Bone Cage the Canada Reads 2011 champion.
During his 12-year career in the National Hockey League, Georges Laraque was one of the most feared enforcers in the game. But off-ice, this talented tough guy has put his muscle behind a wide range of social causes, from relief efforts in Haiti to animal welfare.
You can win a copy of The Bone Cage signed by Georges Laraque and Angie Abdou.
To enter the contest, just watch the video and find out the answer to the following question:
