This year's nominees haven't been revealed yet!

Jian Ghomeshi will introduce the celebrity panelists and their picks on Q, around 10:30 a.m. ET today. Information about the books and their defenders will be available on this site as of 11 a.m. ET.

If you're in the Toronto area, come to our launch event on Wednesday, November 24, at noon in the CBC Atrium, 250 Front Street West. Meet the panelists and authors, and enter our draw for a chance to win the five books.


The Canada Reads publishers support literacy by donating books to libraries, and the publisher of the winning book makes a financial donation to a national adult literacy organization. This year's recipient is Frontier College's Aboriginal Literacy Program.
