UPDATE SEPTEMBER 25.
The Life of Helen Betty Osborne by David Alexander Robertson wins in the Manitoba Reads Audience Choice Poll.
Be a part of the very first edition of Manitoba Reads.
On September 24, four passionate book lovers will debate four Manitoba books down to a single title -- the book that all Manitobans are invited to read!
Be a part of the live recording September 24 at THIN AIR (taking place at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People). The debate will be hosted by CBC's Keran Sanders and broadcast the following morning (September 25) on the Weekend Morning Show.
The final book is chosen through three rounds of debate, and three rounds of voting. If there is a tie at any point during the evening, the results of the Manitoba Reads Audience Choice poll will serve as the tie-breaker.
Your vote counts AND you will be eligible to win SCENE's Big Ticket this week.
Leave a comment for your chance to win a 40 dollar gift card courtesy McNally Robinson Bookstore, a THIN AIR mug, CBC t-shirt, and more.
