UNBC Canada Reads Campaign 2007

Help us celebrate a truly Canadian cultural event!

Canada Reads is an annual "battle of the books" which takes place on CBC radio airing the week of February 26 – March 2, 2007. Five prominent advocates defend their choice for the book that they believe all of Canada should read. This year the Geoffrey R. Weller Library is holding our own campaign. Five prominent UNBC personalities have chosen a book that they believe all of the UNBC community should read. Each reviewer has prepared an argument hoping to win you over to their chosen book. Read these persuasive reviews at http://www.library.unbc.ca/canadareads/unbcreads_main.asp.

A copy of each of these books has been placed on 1-week Reserve in the Library to give you an opportunity to read them for yourself. You will be able to vote for the book that you think all of Canada should read by visiting the library’s website, http://www.library.unbc.ca/canadareads/unbcreads_main.asp, or dropping by the Circulation desk in the library.

Voting will take place throughout the rest of the semester and the UNBC winner will be announced on April 5th. Vote now – vote often!
