Canada Reads 2016

Starting Over

On the 15th edition of CBC's annual battle of the books, five Canadian panellists with very different backgrounds - and a shared fighting spirit - will champion novels that offer different takes on the same theme: starting over. The Canada Reads 2016 books are all about transformation and second chances, including stories of migrants, immigrants and others who are choosing - or forced - to make major changes in their lives.
