7 Libraries. 7 Books. 1 Winner.
Over the summer, seven Simcoe County Libraries – Barrie, Essa, Innisfil, Midland, New Tecumseth, Ramara and BWG – have been busy promoting their chosen titles for the 2021 edition of Simcoe Reads, and now it all comes down to this!
Based on Canada Reads, local champions defend their selected Canadian book in a cover-to-cover competition to decide what book Simcoe County should read. The champions have debated, presented their arguments and answered questions about their books.
BWG Champion, Emily Dalhgren made BWG proud in her defense of Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin.
The debate was filmed in late September and will air on Rogers TV on Sunday, October 3 and 10 at 8:00 pm. Starting October 5, it will also be available to view on the Rogers website, and a link will be added to the BWG Library website.
The champion will be decided by the public, who will be able to vote for the books they feel should win Simcoe Reads 2021.
