Canada Reads 2014

Jian Ghomeshi and CBC Books announced the top 10 books Canadians have chosen to compete in the Canada Reads 2014: One Novel to Change Our Nation competition. The five celebrity panellists that will be championing the top 10 books will be announced on November 27 on CBC’s Q with Jian Ghomeshi and on the CBC Books’ website.

This year’s list is all about inspiring social change in Canada. In honour of this theme, CBC Books is hosting a contest called Stories of Change that asks Canadians to share a story that inspired them to change their lives. You can submit your story on the CBC Books website here or by email at canadareads@cbc.ca. The prize is a trip for two to see the Canada Reads debates live in Toronto in March 2014. Local CBC Radio shows will also give away a CANADA READS prize pack for listeners who submit stories.

This year’s finalists are:

  • The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
  • What the Body Remembers by Shauna Singh Baldwin
  • The Orenda by Joseph Boyden
  • A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali by Gil Courtemanche
  • Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
  • Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
  • October 1970 by Louis Hamelin
  • Cockroach by Rawi Hage
