CBC Books Canada Reads 2016 Longlist

Posted by Wanda Lynne Young on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 Under: Book News

It's that time of the year #CanLit book lovers! Yes, it's the release of the Canada Reads 2016 Longlist and wow, what a fine list of 15 contenders it is! This year the Canada Reads theme is "starting over", featuring stories surrounding change, transformation, and second chances. I'm pleased to see a few of my faves making their way to the top of the pile: "The Illegal", "All The Broken Things", "Sweetland", and "Station Eleven". I'm sure all 15 titles on the longlist are worth a read which is part of the reason why my to-read list keeps growing! 

Last year I attended a live tv taping of a Canada Reads debate from the CBC broadcast building and I'm pleased to see Wab Kinew is back as the #CanadaReads host this year. I found his pensive nature brought some balance to the discussion table of earnest celebrity book defenders. I'm looking forward to following the Canada Reads 2016 "battle of the books" to see the 5 finalists and panellists picked for the shortlist on January 20th and eventually, the winning book to take the Canada Reads 2016 title on March 24th!
