Canada Reads 2016 is all about “starting over.” Your five panellists have chosen the Canadian books they feel best represent the trials and tribulations of making a new start in life.

Explore the books – all available from the ESA Library – as you get ready for the debates, which are taking place this week, March 21-24. Gil Deacon is this year’s host.

While you’re at the CBC site, check out their 100 Novels that make you proud to be Canadian.
