Coach House lands two titles on CBC's Cross-Country Bookshelf

This summer, CBC Books built a literary map of Canada. From coast to coast to coast, CBC shows across the country brought together panels of book lovers to answer the question: 'What books do you really need to read to understand my home?'

Together, they came up with a list of 10 books for each province or region in the country. Canadians around the world took it from there: for four weeks, they voted for their favourite reads, turning each region's list of 10 titles to a final five. Together, 45 different books from all genres make up the Cross-Country Bookshelf.

Coach House is thrilled to announce that we've published two titles featured in the Cross-Country Bookshelf: one on Ontario's bookshelf and one on Alberta's. Shawn Micallef's Stroll: Psychogeographic Walking Tours of Toronto is one of the five finalists for Ontario, while Andrew Wedderburn's hilarious novel, The Milk Chicken Bomb is a finalist for Alberta.

You can view the entire Cross-Country Bookshelf here. Do you agree with the decisions? Any books you'd like to have seen make the shelf?
