It's Canada Reads crunch time and our podcast is here to help
The Canada Reads 2019 debates are just around the corner. From March 25-28, 2019, five panellists will go head to head, defending five Canadian books — each vying for the title of One Book to Move You.
To help tee things up, CBC Books has released six pre-show podcast episodes to help get you acquainted with this year's lineup. You can download the episodes through CBC, iTunes or your favourite podcast app.
The Canada Reads 2019 contenders and their chosen books are:
- Chuck Comeau defending Homes by Abu Bakr al Rabeeah with Winnie Yeung
- Lisa Ray defending Brother by David Chariandy
- Ziya Tong defending By Chance Alone by Max Eisen
- Yanic Truesdale defending Suzanne by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette, translated by Rhonda Mullins
- Joe Zee defending The Woo-Woo by Lindsay Wong
In these six pre-show episodes of the Canada Reads podcast, show host Ali Hassan introduces listeners to the show itself and to each of the books in the running for 2019.
