Toronto Reads: "February" by Lisa Moore

The chilly weather is perfect for curling up with a good book. Last Friday night we curled up with FIVE worthy novels -- the contenders in the Canada Reads debates, which are just around the corner. We've got some special insight into the books from people who know the terrain of each novel. Here is CBC Radio 2 host Tom Power, a native of St. John's, talking about the Maritime contender in Canada Reads. It's Lisa Moore's novel February. The novel captures life after the Ocean Ranger oil rig went down thirty one years ago, claiming 84 lives. Listen audio (runs 7:02)
