The third round of Canada's annual battle of the books (March 10, 2021) featured a lively discussion as the five panellists debated on which of the three remaining books is the "one book to transport us."
Moderated by host Ali Hassan, the panellists talked about how their books explore resilience, accessibility and trauma — with the ensuing conversation leading to another vote.
