The Canada Reads People's Choice winner!


After we announced the Canada Reads 2014 winner -- The Orenda by Joseph Boyden -- we turned it over to Canadians. After reading the books and following the debates we asked: which novel do you think should have won Canada Reads?

It turns out that this year, Canadians and our panel agree! The Orenda is the Canada Reads People's Choice champion! Thanks to everyone who voted.
