Help CBC Books build the Great Canadian Reading List

What Canadian book is most meaningful to you?

July 1, 2017 marks 150 years since Confederation in Canada. CBC Books is creating the Great Canadian Reading List — a list of 150 books curated by you. What Canadian book is most meaningful to you? Let us know by tweeting @cbcbooks, commenting on our Facebook page or emailing us at We'll reveal the list sometime in July.

Our first recommendation comes from Shelagh Rogers. She chose Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese.


To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
