Canada Reads 2019

CBC’s Canada Reads is an annual “battle of the books” where five celebrity panelists will be championing their chosen book as the one book they think all Canadians should read. Homes: a Refugee Story was one of the five contenders and defended gracefully by rock star Chuck Comeau, the drummer from Simple Plan.

Presented with intelligence and class, Chuck Comeau got Homes: A Refugee Story to the final round of debates in March 2019.
