This summer, the CBC is running a new initiative called Cross-Country Bookshelf:
"From coast to coast to coast, CBC shows across the country brought together panels of book lovers to answer the question: "What books do you really need to read to understand my home?" Together, they came up with a list of 10 books for each province or region in the country. Canadians around the world took it from there. For four weeks, they voted for their favourite reads, taking each region's list of 10 titles to a final five. Together, 45 different books from all genres make up the Cross-Country Bookshelf."
I'm pleased to report that we carry a number of the books in store - and not just the obvious Quebec ones like Barney's Version. Come scope out books by Terry Fallis (Ontario), Alexander Macleod (judge for the Maritimes), David Homel (Quebec), Chandra Mayor (judge for Manitoba) and so many more! Plus, don't forget that we are always delighted to order books for you if we don't have them in stock.
Oh, and don't let me forget - check out the top five on the Manitoba page:
Woohoo! Congrats to Chester and all the other authors.
