CANADA READS
Launched in 2001, CANADA READS is CBC's annual battle of the books, where five Canadian personalities each select a book they believe all Canadians should read. They defend their chosen title in a series of debates, and the books are eliminated one by one until a winner is declared. The debates air on CBC Radio One, CBC-TV, documentary and are live streamed at CBCBooks.ca.
