On Day One, The Woo-Woo by Lindsay Wong and defended by Joe Zee, was the first book to be removed from contention. On Day Two, Yanic Truesdale valiantly championed the novel Suzanne by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette and translated by Rhonda Mullins, but was ultimately eliminated.
The third round of Canada's annual battle of the books (March 27, 2019) was intense as the five panellists debated on which of the three remaining books is the one all Canadians must read.
Moderated by host Ali Hassan, the panellists talked about how the contending books explore themes of diverse representation, overcoming loss and the power of hope — with the lively discussion leading to an emotional final vote.
