CBC‘s Canada Reads has expanded its scope with a new series called Canada Reads Poetry.

The panellists include Sonnet L’Abbé, Anne Simpson, George Murray, Susan Musgrave and Jacob McArthur Mooney, each defending a collection of poetry.

From the Afterward:

The debate will culminate with a live online chat (exact time and date TBD) hosted by both the CBC and the National Post. The public will then crown the champion in an online vote, which will close on Tuesday, April 26 at midnight ET.

For more see the Canada Reads website.

Bonus: Sonnet L’Abbé’s poetry has appeared in The Best Canadian Poetry in English 2009, and 2010.
