Canada Reads 2015 posterThe popular annual book debate Canada Reads returns to the CBC airwaves in mid-March and the Côte Saint-Luc Library is getting in on the action!

On Thursday, March 12 at 7 pm, five CSL librarians will defend their choice of one of the five books in contention at a high-spirited round-table debate at the library. We’ll have light refreshments for the audience and the event is free!

The theme of this year’s debate is “One Book to Break Barriers” and it features five books, both fiction and non-fiction, that question stereotypes and bring important issues to light. The shortlisted books are Ru by Montreal writer Kim Thúy (translated by Sheila Fischman), Intolerable: A Memoir of Extremes by Kamal Al-Solaylee, The Inconvenient Indian by Thomas King, And the Birds Rained Down by Jocelyne Saucier (translated by Rhonda Mullins), and When Everything Feels like the Movies by Raziel Reid.
