What a better way to spend the Canada Day weekend but reading. Looking for more suggestions? Here are some authors to "check out"

Just reflecting on a few of my favourite Canadian Reads/Canadian authors this morning:

Medicine Walk (or really anything by the late Richard Wagamese!) - recently enjoyed his One Story, One Song

Anne of Green Gables and the entire Anne Series. I also recommend the Emily of New Moon series which I just recently enjoyed.

The Handmaid's Tale is a book that everyone should read at least once. For our Canada Day book club on Wednesday, I am reading her book Cat's Eye for the first time.

What are your favourites?

Michael Ondaatje's The Cat's Table

Heather(Gibby) (heather-gibby) | 428 comments I think a really under recognized author is Michael Crummey, I have loved the three books I have read by him, Galore, The Wreckage, and Sweetland.

Allison ༻hikes the bookwoods༺ (allisonhikesthebookwoods) | 1643 comments I addressed this very topic on my CanLit blog recently. My favourites are The Handmaid's Tale, Random Passage, and I'm Thinking of Ending Things.
