The Canada Reads 2021 panellists introduce us to the books they’re championing
Canada Reads, CBC's annual battle of the books, is officially back for another round of high-stakes debate. Every year, five prominent Canadians champion a book they think the entire country should read. This year's theme is One Book to Transport Us. All five of this year’s panellists — Roger Mooking, Devery Jacobs, Rosey Edeh, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee and Scott Helman — joined guest host Talia Schlanger to introduce us to the books they’re championing: Butter Honey Pig Bread by Francesca Ekwuyasi, Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead, The Midnight Bargain by C.L. Polk, Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots, and Two Trees Make a Forest by Jessica J. Lee.
