It's Day Two of Canada Reads 2022! Life in the City of Dirty Water by Clayton Thomas-Müller was eliminated on Day One, which means its champion, Suzanne Simard, is now a free agent.

The second round of Canada's annual great book debate (March 29, 2022) was both passionate and intense as the contending panellists went head-to-head on why their book is the "one book to connect us."

Moderated by host Ali Hassan, the panellists assessed the writing and style of the contending books and discussed the literary themes of self-discovery, healing and emotional complexity — with the ensuing debates leading to a tense final vote.
