An ESA Canada Reads Contest.

The Canada Reads 2018 Longlist was announced mid-week last week.  we hope you saw the posting at ESAInfo… if not use this link to follow through to it.

This year the theme is One Book to Open Your Eyes.

  • It is all about life in our diverse world… and truly opening your eyes to the experiences of others.
  • Many of the titles are heart-breaking, gut-wrenching reads… but they did make sure to get some light-hearted takes in there as well.

We are delighted to announce something new to our Canada Reads experience this year (not at all sure why we didn’t think of this before, but better late than never)…

A CONTEST to GUESS the SHORTLIST!

ALSO, be sure to check your calendars and JOIN US on our FIELD TRIP to the final day of taping of this year’s Canada Reads, on Thursday March 29th.
