Canada Reads 2013 – The People Have Chosen

The five finalists in each region for Canada Reads 2013 were announced by Canada Reads host Jian Ghomeshi. This year five books will be selected, one from each region, and will be pitted against each other in a battle to the finish. This may be the first time the regions of Canada are divided over books!

The five Canada Reads 2013 panelists will be revealed on Thursday, November 29 on Q on CBC Radio. At the same time they will tell the country which book they have selected from their region to defend.
