In the dismal middle of January, in our second pandemic year, we could probably all use One Book to Transport Us. This is the theme for the 2021 edition of CBC’s Canada Reads, the popular nationwide Battle of the Books: books to transport you across Canada, around the world and to worlds beyond. The final debates will air from March 8-11, so we have lots of time to get to know the contenders and, as always, the OPL’s got you covered with all the titles in multiple formats. You can find out more about the program, the books and the authors on the CBC Canada Reads website https://www.cbc.ca/books/canadareads. Let us know if you already have a favourite, or if there’s one you’re particularly interested in reading!
