*In light of Canada's current situation with COVID-19, CBC has postponed Canada Reads indefinitely, but you can still get the books from OPL in various digital formats. CBC continues to post great online content providing context and insight into the 5 contenders and their authors to enrich your enjoyment and understanding of the books.* 

Next week, from March 16-19, the country will be debating this year’s Canada Reads contenders. The five chosen books include memoirs, realistic fiction, sci-fi and fantasy and tell a diverse range of Canadian stories. They are thought provoking, heartbreaking, uplifting and sometimes very funny! You can find all five books at OPL, in many formats (including Express eBooks). More information about Canada Reads, including interviews with the authors and champions, can be found on the CBC Canada Reads page at this link: https://www.cbc.ca/books/canadareads

I loved Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson so much I think I've tried to get everyone I know to read it. Do you have a favourite? Let us know!
