Canada Reads 2013 winner Lisa Moore in Studio Q

Over the past four days, five celebrity panellists fought it out; passionately arguing that the novel they were defending was the most worthy. Comedian Trent McClellan represented the Atlantic Provinces and the book he chose was yesterday crowned the winner of Canada Reads 2013: Turf Wars. That book is "February" by Lisa Moore, the story of a widow's grief in the wake of 1982's Ocean Ranger oil rig disaster. Juror Trent McClellan and author Lisa Moore join Jian at the desk in studio Q.
