Clara Hughes Defends Lawrence Hill’s The Illegal for CBC Canada Reads

It has just been recently announced that on the 15th edition of CBC’s Canada Reads–an annual battle of the books–Olympian Clara Hughes will champion Lawrence Hill‘s latest novel, The Illegal, against four other Canadian titles, also defended by notable Canadians. This year’s books are all about transformation and second chances, including stories of migrants, immigrants and others who are choosing – or forced – to make major changes in their lives. The debates will take place on March 21-24, 2016. Congratulations to Clara and Lawrence, and may the best book win!
