Canada Reads is relatively new tradition in Canada. An annual ‘battle of the books’ competition, it is organized and broadcast by CBC Radio One. During the week of February 25-29, 2008, for the first time, CBC’ll be podcasting the shows and you’ll be able to subscribe here. In the 2008 batch there’s one Science Fiction title. Brown Girl In The Ring by Nalo Hopkinson.
Listen to Canada Reads producer Ann Jansen talking to Nalo Hopkinson about it |WMV|.
Listen to Nalo reading a two minute excerpt from her novel |WMV|.
Keep track of the battle on the official site.
Also, I wrote a review of the audiobook back in 2004. Check it out HERE.
