CBC's Canada Reads Not Delivering The Real Goods?

According to a recent article in the National Post, CBC's annual Canada Reads - "CBC's annual battle of the books, where five Canadian personalities select the book they think Canadians should read" - may be directing Canadians away from good literature. (Mavis Gallant and Alice Munro were dumped by certain Canadian celebrities one year.) Click here to read a Post contributor's take on Canada Reads.


Rattling Books thinks Mavis Gallant is just swell, and would never dump her. Listen to an excerpt from Rattling Books' audio edition of Gallant's Montreal Stories, narrated by Audie-nominated narrator Margot Dionne. Montreal Stories is available as an MP3 download or an MP3 CD.
