The Canada Reads panelists are now busy plotting strategy and sizing up the strengths and weaknesses of their competition.
To give you some insight into what they're thinking and planning, in the weeks leading up to the debates we'll be presenting a podcast of producer Lindsay Michael's conversation with each panelist. The podcast will be posted every Friday (with the exception of this first in the series.)
We'll kick things off with Lindsay's conversation with Olympic wrestler Carol Huynh, who represents the British Columbia and Yukon region in Canada Reads: Turf Wars. She's championing Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese. She talks about why she finds the novel so compelling and why she thinks that all of Canada will be captivated by the story of Saul Indian Horse. She also shares her thoughts on her fellow panelists, and hints at the tactics she'll use to make sure she and her chosen book come out on top.
Listen to the whole podcast in the audio player below.
The Canada Reads debates take place February 11-14. Find out how to watch, listen and stream online.
