Description

Join us for an evening of friendly debate as our fellow Guelphites defend their selections for the book that should be on all of our reading lists.

This year, the selections include:

Judith Yan will win your vote for Washington Black by Esi Edugyan.

A dazzling, original novel of slavery and freedom, from the author of the international bestseller Half-Blood Blues.

Aggie Mlynarz will be advocating for Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq.

This debut from acclaimed Inuit throat singer Tagaq (her album “Animism” won the 2014 Polaris Music Prize) is a shamanic coming-of-age journey through a haunted and mystical Arctic landscape.

Rev. John Borthwick will be convincing you to read Seven Fallen Feathers Tanya Talaga

In 1966, 12-year-old Chanie Wenjack froze to death on the railway tracks after running away from residential school. An inquest was called and four recommendations were made to prevent another tragedy. None of those recommendations were applied.

Hosted by the lovely (and impartial) Anne MacKay.

Vote for your favorite to win!
