On Friday night, I had the opportunity to attend CBC Canada Reads public event and hosted by All In A Day‘s Alan Neal. The 2016 edition of Canada Reads is nearing and this event had one of the finalists, Saleema Nawaz for her book, Bone and Bread. She’s originally from Ottawa and now residing in Montreal.
Nawaz’s defender, Farah Mohamed was there for the event and telling the audience why’s she defending the book and hoping it wins Canada Reads.
Aside from the conversations, there were performances from Mehdi Cayenne Club and Casey Mecija (formerly of Ohbijou and host of CBC’s The Doc Project).
