Five local celebrities have crossed antlers in Grey County Reads, a county-wide reading program involving seven local libraries, including Grey Highlands, Hanover, Meaford, Owen Sound, Southgate, Town of Blue Mountains and West Grey.
Each celebrity advocated for one Canadian book over five published installments, covering plot, character and theme analyses as well as introductory and summary arguments.
Readers were encouraged to follow along with the contest, consider each book and it’s celebrity endorsement. Pick up your own copy of one or more of these books and give us your opinion too. Books are available in limited quantities from your local public library or may be purchased from your favourite local bookstore.
Read any or all of the Grey County Reads books and/or read each of the book synopses and celebrity installments posted on SouthGrey.ca.
This year's winner was Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice, advocated by Steven Morel.
