Canada Reads 2020: Why George Canyon is championing Jesse Thistle's memoir From the Ashes
Canada Reads, CBC's annual battle of the books, is back next month for another round of high-stakes debate. This year's theme is "one book to bring Canada into focus."
Over the next couple of weeks on q, each of the five panellists will defend their book choices. Today, we hear from country music singer George Canyon, who is championing Jesse Thistle's memoir From the Ashes.
You can catch the Canada Reads debates starting on March 16 on CBC Radio One and at cbc.ca/books. You'll hear a lot more from the 2020 panellists in the coming weeks on q.
