CBC Canada Reads: Vote for Canada’s True Stories
CBC Canada Reads 2012 shines the spotlight on Canada’s True Stories. Memoirs, biographies and literary non-fiction will be considered this year to form the Top 40 revealed on October 18th, 2011. Any Canadian can vote for or recommend their favourite true story.
Today, Canada Reads released the Publishing Insiders’s Picks, including a recommendation from our very own Dewey Diva Ann Ledden. She recommends Sixtyfive Roses: A Sister’s Memoir by Heather Summerhayes Cariou with a foreword from Celine Dion.
A compelling and unflinchingly honest memoir of a family in crisis as it falls apart and puts itself together again. The story explores the relationship between two sisters — one devastatingly ill, the other healthy but burdened with guilt.
You can vote now for Ann’s pick, Sixtyfive Roses, on the CBC Canada Reads website.
