Great reads from the B.C. Interior

The five contenders for this year's Canada Reads contest have been announced -- and this year it's regional.

Books have been chosen to represent five regions of Canada: the Atlantic provinces, Quebec, Ontario, the Prairies and North, and B.C. and Yukon.

For some ideas on great books that have come from Interior writers, we turned to author and Okanagan College professor Alix Hawley who suggested these four literary works.

Shelter, by Francie Greenslade
So it Won't Go Away by John Lent
Swamp Angel by Ethel Wilson
Traplines by Eden Robinson
