Canada Reads 2014: And the Winner Is…


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

Yesterday, the last round-table debate took place for Canada Reads 2014.

And while Samantha Bee gave a quite compelling argument on behalf of the diversified immigrant experience on behalf of the book, The Cockroach by Rawi Hage, it was Wab Kinew’s assertive passion that won the panelist over.

Congratulations to Wab Kinew on behalf of The Orenda by Jospeh Boyden!

Of all the five books in the Canada Reads 2014 competition, which one would you like to read the most?

Do you agree with the panelists’ choice for this year’s Canada Reads 2014 winner? Why or why not?
