Are you a fan of Canada Reads but don’t have anyone to watch it with? Drop by the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library to watch the livestream of the debates.

On March 25, 26, 27, and 28 at 11 a.m., the library will be airing the debates as they happen. Come on out to root for your favourite, discuss the show with other book lovers, and see how the competition plays out!

The debates will be streamed at both library locations: the James L. McIntyre Centennial Library, 50 East St., and the Korah Branch Library, 556 Goulais Ave.

Canada Reads is an annual battle of the books, run by the CBC. Five panelists defend a book of their choosing, vote titles out of contention, and crown a winner over the span of four days. 

This year’s book finalists consist of Brother by David Chariandy, By Chance Alone by Max Eisen, Homes by Abu Bakr Al Rabeeah, Suzanne by Anais Barbeau-Lavalette, and The Woo-Woo by Lindsay Wong.

This is a free program. For more information, please contact the Reference and Information Desk at 705-759-5236.
