Award description

The "Combat des livres" is a "battle of the books" competition on Radio Canada; it is the French version the CBC's Canada Reads. Five celebrity panelists each select and defend a Canadian book (written or translated in French), and then each episode they debate them and vote to eliminate one book per episode; the last book remaining is the winner.
