Today CBC Books announced the 15-title longlist for the 23rd edition of their book competition show, Canada Reads, which will take place March 4-7. Five panellists will select a book to champion from the longlist, creating the shortlist that will enter the four-day debate show, in which panellists defend their chosen title and vote off their competitors. One book is voted off each day until a winner is chosen. 

Each year, Canada Reads chooses a theme; the 2024 theme is "one book to carry us forward."
