Join our host, Carleton University’s Adrian Harewood for a conversation with Waubgeshig Rice in celebration of Moon of the Turning Leaves , the hotly anticipated sequel to his bestseller Moon of the Crusted Snow.

 

It's been over a decade since a mysterious cataclysm caused a permanent blackout that toppled infrastructure and thrust the world into anarchy. Evan Whitesky led his community in remote northern Ontario off the rez and into the bush, where they've been living off the land, rekindling their Anishinaabe traditions in total isolation from the outside world. As new generations are born, and others come of age in the world after everything, Evan’s people are in some ways stronger than ever. But resources in and around their new settlement are beginning to dry up, and the elders warn that they cannot afford to stay indefinitely.
