Canada Reads 2019: Meet this year's contenders
Canada Reads, CBC's annual battle of the books, is officially back for another round of high-stakes debate. Every year, five prominent Canadians duke it out in front of a live audience as each one of them defends the book they believe the entire country should read.
This time around, they're out to prove that they've found the One Book to Move You, which is this year's Canada Reads theme.
To kick off this year's challenge, all five Canada Reads panellists get together in the q studio to introduce the books they are championing.
You can catch the Canada Reads debates starting on March 25 on CBC Radio One and at cbc.ca/books. You'll hear a lot more from the 2019 panellists in the coming weeks on q.
— Produced by Chloe Shantz-Hilkes and Vanessa Greco
