Dallas Soonias champions Bad Cree by Jessica Johns

A Cree man with a moustache holds up a red book. He is wearing a maroon outfit.

Bad Cree is a horror-infused novel that centres around a young woman named Mackenzie, who is haunted by terrifying nightmares and wracked with guilt about her sister Sabrina's untimely death. The lines between her dreams and reality start to blur when she begins seeing a murder of crows following her around the city — and starts getting threatening text messages from someone claiming to be her dead sister.

Looking to escape, Mackenzie heads back to her hometown in rural Alberta where she finds her family still entrenched in their grief. With her dreams intensifying and getting more dangerous, Mackenzie must confront a violent family legacy and reconcile with the land and her community.

On CBC Radio's   Commotion , Soonias revealed that his strategy is not to share his strategy with the other panellists. Still, he shared a taste of what resonated with him when reading Bad Cree . 

"The author, Jessica Jones, describes herself as a nehiyaw aunty. I'm nehiyaw. This story is a nehiyaw story. So I felt like I had a shorthand with the characters and the author," he said. 

I felt like I had a shorthand with the characters and the author. - Dallas Soonias on his connection to Bad Cree

"Just listening to how she describes and writes about her family dynamic... I'm right there with her. For me, personally, that was super lucky."

Jessica Johns is a queer nehiyaw aunty with English-Irish ancestry and a member of Sucker Creek First Nation. Johns won the 2020 Writers' Trust Journey Prize for the short story Bad Cree , which evolved into the novel of the same name. Bad Cree also won the MacEwan Book of the Year prize. Johns is currently based in Edmonton.

"I really wanted to represent, in this novel, the important relationships that aunties have had in my life," Johns said in an interview with  The Next Chapter .  

I really wanted to represent, in this novel, the important relationships that aunties have had in my life. - Jessica Johns

"And the aunties in the novel are a mishmash of all of my aunties in small ways and one of the things that I wanted to do was also kind of subvert this idea of the 'all-knowing' native person.

"That's kind of funny to me because all of the brilliant people in my life, all of the Indigenous people who are so, so brilliant are also very human and flawed and complex."

Dallas Soonias  is a former star player on the Canadian national men's volleyball team and a current contributor for  CBC Sports . Hailing from Saskatoon, he is Cree/Anishinaabe and registered with the the Chippewas of Nawash. Soonias made history as the first Indigenous male to represent Canada in volleyball and actively promotes a more inclusive environment for Indigenous athletes and students. He's also part of CBC Sports ' broadcast team for the 2024 Paris Olympics . In 2023, Soonias wrote, directed and produced the short film,  Frank Gets the Job Done,  which was commissioned by the ImagineNATIVE Film Festival.

Naheed Nenshi champions Denison Avenue by Christina Wong & Daniel Innes

A South Asian man wearing glasses and a purple quarter zip sweater smiles at the camera while holding a book.

Set in Toronto's Chinatown and Kensington Market, Denison Avenue is a moving portrait of a city undergoing mass gentrification and a Chinese Canadian elder experiencing the existential challenges of getting old and being Asian in North America. Recently widowed, Wong Cho Sum takes long walks through the city, collecting bottles and cans and meeting people on her journeys in a bid to ease her grief.

"The magnificent Denison Avenue will tell you a story you've never heard before — about people you think you know in your neighbourhood," said Nenshi in his 30-second pitch on CBC Radio's   Commotion .

It will change you. It will change how you look at people on the bus and on the streets. It will change how you live your life. - Naheed Nenshi on why Denison Avenue should win Canada Reads 2024

"It will change you. It will change how you look at people on the bus and on the streets. It will change how you live your life. Christina Wong is gonna tear your heart out and stomp on it — and then hand it back to you a little bandaged, a little bruised, but filled with empathy and filled with hope," said Nenshi.

"And empathy and hope are what are going to carry us forward."

Christina Wong is a Toronto writer, playwright and multidisciplinary artist who also works in sound installation, audio documentaries and photography.

Daniel Innes is a multidisciplinary artist from Toronto. He works in painting, installation, graphic and textile design, illustration, sign painting and tattooing.

"[Toronto's Chinatown/Kensington Market is] a neighborhood that I've pretty much grown up with," said Wong in a forthcoming interview with  The Next Chapter . "My parents and my grandparents, our family, we would just go there on Sundays and go for dim sum and go grocery shopping. So it's a place that's like home for me. 

It's a place that's like home for me. - Christina Wong

"It's also where my family association is, the Wong Association, and it's also considered like another home where I would go and talk to the elders and learn things. So I felt like myself, in a sense, like I could learn more about my culture."

Naheed Nenshi  is a community builder. He was Calgary's mayor for three terms between 2010 and 2021. He was awarded the World Mayor Prize in 2014 and is recognized internationally as a voice on urban issues.

Before becoming mayor, Nenshi was Canada's first tenured professor of nonprofit management at the Bissett School of Business at Mount Royal University and worked in consulting.

Mirian Njoh champions Meet Me at the Lake by Carley Fortune

A Black woman with albinism holds a pink book. She is wearing a monochrome red outfit with sheer sleeves.

Meet Me at the Lake finds 32-year-old Fern Brookbanks stuck — she can't quite stop thinking about one perfect day she spent in her 20s. By chance, she met a man named Will Baxter and the two spent a romantic 24 hours in Toronto, after which they promised to meet up one year later. But Will never showed up. 

Now, instead of living in the city like she thought she would, Fern manages her mother's Muskoka resort by the lake, a role she promised herself she'd never take on. Disillusioned with her life, Fern is shocked when Will shows up at her door, suitcase in hand, asking to help.

Why is he here after all this time and more importantly, can she trust him to stay? It's clear Will has a secret but Fern isn't sure if she's ready to hear it all these years later. 

  • Read an excerpt from Meet Me at the Lake now

" Meet Me at the Lake is a complex and beautifully written romance novel," said Njoh in her 30-second pitch on CBC Radio's   Commotion .  "It features a full cast of richly developed characters as they navigate their way through romantic love, familial love, and the self love that comes from aligning with your passions and purpose."

It inspires and empowers us to reflect on our own lives and values, to see how the choices we make bring us closer to our own happily ever after. - Mirian Njoh on why Meet Me at the Lake should win Canada Reads 2024

"The characters' experiences provide a road map for what it means to have compassion, show grace, be selfless and find your way home. It inspires and empowers us to reflect on our own lives and values, to see how the choices we make bring us closer to our own happily ever after."

Carley Fortune is a Toronto-based journalist and writer who has worked as an editor for Refinery29, The Globe and Mail, Chatelaine and Toronto Life. She is also the author of  Every Summer After . 

  • Blockbuster Canadian romance writer Carley Fortune dives into summer love at the lake

"What I love as a romance reader is watching two people who can feel very real going through real problems and trying to figure themselves out, trying to figure another person out and ultimately there is this happy ending," Carley Fortune said in an interview on The Next Chapter . 

I want people to feel like they've snooped on a real relationship and I want to give people an escape. - Carley Fortune

"I think my books do look at tough subjects. Meet Me at the Lake deals with mental health, with grief and loss. But ultimately, I want to give people hope. I want people to feel like they've snooped on a real relationship and I want to give people an escape."

Mirian Njoh is a self-described creative multi-hyphenate and an avid reader. She combines her love of photography, fashion, storytelling and modelling in her everyday life as a content creator and model.

Kudakwashe Rutendo champions Shut Up You're Pretty by Téa Mutonji

A Black woman wearing a blue and white poofy dress drops a book and looks at the camera.

Shut Up You're Pretty  is a short fiction collection that tells stories of a young woman coming of age in the 21st century in Scarborough, Ont. The disarming, punchy and observant stories follow her as she watches someone decide to shave her head in an abortion clinic waiting room, bonds with her mother over fish and contemplates her Congolese traditions at a wedding. 

Shut Up You're Pretty was on the 2019 Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize shortlist and won the 2020 Edmund White Award for debut fiction. 

" Shut Up You're Pretty is a compilation of short stories centred on Loli, a Black Congolese immigrant to Toronto," said Rutendo in her 30-second pitch on CBC Radio's   Commotion .  "In the last few years, we as people have overcome a pandemic, been faced with immeasurable global and humanitarian disasters — yet we admirably looked forward."

Within Shut Up You're Pretty is the promise of hope and future, not in spite of a heavy past, but because of it. - Kudakwashe Rutendo on why Shut Up You're Pretty should win Canada Reads 2024

"Within Shut Up You're Pretty is the promise of hope and future, not in spite of a heavy past, but because of it. At once feminist, unapologetic and potent, Shut Up You're Pretty presents the opportunity to reconcile what we've been carrying at a time when it couldn't be more needed," said Rutendo. 

"This is one book to carry us forward through negotiating our past."

Téa Mutonji  was named  a writer to watch in 2019  by  CBC Books . Born in Congo-Kinshasa, Mutonji is also the editor of the anthology Feel Ways: A Scarborough Anthology. She currently lives in Toronto.

  • Why Téa Mutonji wanted her first short story collection to challenge what diverse literature is supposed to be

"I was first writing these stories independently and I realized that I was writing the same character for the protagonist," Téa Mutonji said in an interview with CBC Books .

"I wanted to explore why I was doing that. I didn't want to write a collection of short stories about a young Black woman living her life and have it be suggested that it was the experience of all Black women. I did understand, however, that it would probably be regarded as such because we don't have enough young women of colour writing.

I didn't want to write a collection of short stories about a young Black woman living her life and have it be suggested that it was the experience of all Black women. - Téa Mutonji

"I decided to keep it to one character so this could be viewed as one experience. That was important to me, to show that this is one woman experiencing different women in multiple ways and experiencing different experiences in multiple ways.

"This is not at all the experience of every person of colour, of every woman, of every immigrant and of every person from that [Toronto] neighbourhood."

Kudakwashe Rutendo  is an actor to watch who fell in love with the stage by performing live poetry. Since then she's starred in feature films  Giving Hope: The Ni'cola Mitchell Story  and, most recently,  Backspot, a drama directed by D.W. Waterson and produced by Elliot Page and Page Boy Productions.

  • Kudakwashe Rutendo is making a handspring into the spotlight with the cheerleading drama Backspot

She's not just a film star — her theatre credits include roles in the  Lost Heroes of Oro  at   Theatre by the Bay and Vierge  at Factory Theatre — and she does it all while juggling her coursework as an undergrad at the University of Toronto.

Heather O'Neill champions The Future by Catherine Leroux, translated by Susan Ouriou

A white woman with short grey hair poses in a side profile with a book. She wears blue overalls and a frilly white shirt.

The Future  is set in an alternate history of Detroit where the French never surrendered the city to the U.S. Its residents deal with poverty, pollution and a legacy of racism. When Gloria, a woman looking for answers about her missing granddaughters, arrives in the city, she finds a kingdom of orphaned and abandoned children who have created their own society.

The Future won the Jacques-Brossard Award for speculative fiction. 

"One, it takes place in a post-apocalyptic Detroit where everyone speaks French, so super cool," O'Neill said in her 30-second pitch on why everyone should read  The Future  on CBC Radio's   Commotion .  

This wild group of children show us a model for a new society where everyone's dream life is equally important. - Heather O'Neill on why The Future should win Canada Reads 2024

"Two, it is the most magical response to Lord of the Flies . You're going to meet a group of feral, murderous children whose meditations on life are so gorgeous and absurd and perverse that they are poetry. And this wild group of children show us a model for a new society where everyone's dream life is equally important."

Catherine Leroux is a writer, translator and journalist from Montreal. She was shortlisted for the 2016 Scotiabank Giller Prize for  The Party Wall , which is an English translation of her French-language short story collection Le mur mitoyen. Leroux won the 2019 Governor General's Literary Award for English to French translation for her translation of Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien. 

Susan Ouriou is a French and Spanish to English translator, a fiction writer and a playwright. She has previously won the Governor General's Literary Award for translation for her work. She lives in Calgary. 

"There's still a huge French community in that area, in southern Ontario, the area of Windsor and also in the Michigan area — so the French never left in reality — but my idea was that it never became American," Catherine Leroux said in an upcoming interview on  The Next Chapter .  

"And so basically in my world, Detroit or Fort Détroit is the second biggest francophone city in North America after Montreal. So that's the setting. I think that as soon as I started being interested in the history of Detroit, it went without saying that I would have to delve into that.

It was a nice way to rewrite history and rewrite the history of language at the same time. - Catherine Leroux

"And then it was also for novelistic reasons because I wanted to be able to write dialogue that felt closer to the dialects and the French that I hear around me.

"And if I'm writing about English characters, but I'm writing their dialogue into French, then it can't really take that shape. So it was a nice way to rewrite history and rewrite the history of language at the same time."

Catherine Leroux imagines an alternate history of Detroit in her book, The Future

Heather O'Neill is novelist, short-story writer and essayist based in Montreal. Her debut novel  Lullabies for Little Criminals  won  Canada Reads  2007 and was a Giller finalist. She was the first back-to-back finalist for the  Scotiabank Giller Prize  for  The Girl Who Was Saturday Night  in 2014 and her short story collection  Daydreams of Angels  in 2015. 

  • Heather O'Neill reflects on what it was like when her debut novel won Canada Reads 2007  

Her novel  The Lonely Hearts Hotel   won the Paragraphe Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction and was longlisted for  Canada Reads  2021.  When We Lost Our Heads   is her most recent novel that follows two extraordinary young women — Marie Antoine and Sadie Arnett — 19th century aristocrats living in Montreal's wealthiest neighbourhood, the Golden Mile.
