Panelists chosen for Grey County Reads program

Panelists chosen for Grey County Reads



The first ever Grey County Reads ended in March, 2018 with the crowning of Crow Lake by Mary Lawson as the ultimate winner.

Recently at a Grey Highlands Library’s Harvest Café event, Sharon Sinclair, the winning book’s successful advocate, named the panelists and book selections for the second Grey County Reads contest to begin in January, 2019.

Panelists and their books

Kaleena Johnson, Manager of Customer & Media Relations for the MS Chi-Cheemaun, will advocate for Starlight by Richard Wagamese.

Terry Burns, writer, poet, visual artist and arts administrator, will advocate for Bellevue Square by Michael Redhill.

Steve Morel, Entertainer and Arts Administrator for Durham Art Gallery, will advocate for Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice.

Geoff Bowes, actor, author and former carpenter, will advocate for Steal Away Home by Karolyn Smardz-Frost.

Carolyn Latourneau, Executive Director for Beaver Valley Outreach will advocate for The Evening Chorus by Helen Humphreys.

All of these books are available at your local library and Grey County book stores. Everyone is encouraged to read one or more of these titles and participate in the fun. More information about these titles and their authors will follow on over the next two months.

In January, each panelist will advocate for their book in a series of published instalments. In February, voting for your favourite must-read book will begin. Every week, one book will be eliminated until one remains. That book and its advocate will be named Grey County Reads Champion.

Voters can also vote on behalf of their local library. At the end of the contest, three random winners will also be chosen among all participating voters to win gift certificates and the library with the most votes cast on their behalf will also win $200 worth of books from Speaking Volumes Books and Audio.
