What is the one book to break barriers? That's the question host Wab Kinew will be asking for the 14th edition of CBC's battle of the books.
Canada Reads 2015 is all about books that can change perspectives, challenge stereotypes and illuminate issues. The debates take place March 16-19.
|Difficult to find a cover photo of this one.|
Rosa defended this book.
We didn't have fancy photos done for us by professional photographers. But we were very articulate in our defense of "our" book!!!
|Her book was sheer poetry!|
|Nancy defended this book.|
|She found her book Tolerable.|
|She was convinced she had the winner|
|Carol defended this one.|
|Time out for a cigar after all that reading.|
|Seriously considers the content using her political science background.|
|Maxine and I defended this one.|
|Shirley and Linda supported this one.|
|Not really keen on her book this year!|
|We do enjoy a good meal when we are discussin|
Had we had the CBC machine behind us we would have posed with our book covers in the same way as these folks.
In case you don't have time to listen to Canada Reads on CBC you should know that our group tied between The Inconvenient Indian and And the Birds Rained Down.
Our voting was somewhat skewed in that Rosa had to leave early to pick up her granddaughter. There wouldn't have been a tie if she had voted. We do vote with secret ballot rather than telling each other our choice to eliminate. We want to stay friends for many more years to come.
Truth be told although I found all of them compelling in one way or another I believe And the Birds Rained Down to be the best choice for this year. But we will all have to wait for March 19th.
