Canada Reads, CBC's annual battle of the books, is back at the end of this month for another round of high-stakes debate. This year's theme is "one book to move you."

If you've tuned into q over the past few weeks, you might have heard from some of this year's panellists already. Today, the fifth and final competitor, fashion stylist Joe Zee, joins host Tom Power to tell us why he's defending The Woo-Woo, a memoir by Lindsay Wong.

You can catch the Canada Reads debates starting on March 25 on CBC Radio One, CBC Television and at cbc.ca/books. The debates will also be available on Gem, CBC's free streaming service. 

Produced by ​Vanessa Greco
