CBC’s “Canada Reads” to Feature Jim Cuddy

November 29, 2006

CBC Radio’s annual “Canada Reads” competition has announced its 2007 reading list and our own Jim Cuddy has been named one of the five all-star panellists. Jim, whose literary selection won “Canada Reads” several years ago, is championing Timothy Taylor’s novel Stanley Park.

Jim faces some tough competition from his fellow panellists who include the Barenaked Ladies’ Steven Page and who are rooting for such diverse selections as Gabrielle Roy’s Governor General awarding-winning Children of My Heart and the Mumbai-based The Song of Kahunsha by Anosh Irani.

Jim and the other panellists will defend their choices starting on February 26 at 11:30am and 7:30pm (half an hour later in Newfoundland) on your local CBC One station.  The competition wraps on Friday, March 2, 2007. For more details on “Canada Reads” check out its website.
