Everything Yellowknife

Canada should read Yellowknife

The National Post has a project called “Canada Also Reads” which highlights several overlooked Canadian books published over the last two years, that should be discussed further. I mentioned the other day the Yellowknife’s own John Mutford was defending Steve Zipp’s book titled simply “Yellowknife”. He says although he may get criticized about choosing a book with the same name as the city he lives in he decided to risk it. He points out that every Canadian should read this book because deep down there is an explorer in all of us. You can read his full review here: http://ow.ly/1f1a5

Anyways, John’s essay is apart of the project and now the National Post wants us, the readers, to vote on a winner. Although I only linked to John’s (and I hope you vote for it) there are seven other essays worth considering. Voting is much simpler than another competition going on right now, all you need to do is click the one you want to vote for and press VOTE. Head over to the National Posts website now and vote.
