February wins Canada Reads!

Lisa Moore has won the Canada Reads competition for her fantastic book February. The win came on the 31st anniversary of the storm that sank the Ocean Ranger oil rig off the coast of Newfoundland on Feb. 15th 1982. The book tells the story of one woman’s grief and stuggle to cope after the death of her husband Cal in the Ocean Ranger disaster. Lisa deserves all the attention & recognition and $s this award brings. It is one of my all time favourite books. READ IT!!! (And read my blog posting from March 2010.)

If you didn’t hear Jian Ghomeshi’s intro on “Q” on CBC radio the morning after, you’ve got to find it online and listen to his ode to Canadian literature… he brought me to tears.
