We're making our way across the country this week, sharing the videos from the Canada Reads 2013 live launch, which took place on November 29 at the CBC's Broadcast Centre in Toronto. Today we stop in Ontario where biographer and historian Charlotte Gray explains why she chose Away by Jane Urquhart.
Charlotte reveals that even though she and Jane are friends in real life, she believes Away is an important and moving book that takes a unique approach to Canadian history.
The 2013 debates air on CBC Radio One and on documentary, and will be streamed online February 11-14. There will also be an encore presentation on CBC-TV February 12-15!
