Canada Reads

Canada Reads is an annual battle of the books organized and broadcast by the CBC. During the program's run, five "defenders" extoll the virtues of their chosen book, with each episode voting out one title until just one book remains. The winner is then billed as the book that all of Canada should read. Below, discover past winners and their defenders.
