Waubgeshig Rice brings “Moon of the Turning Leaves” to Timmins Public Library

Northern Ontario Indigenous author Waubgeshig Rice comes to the Timmins Public Library’s main branch on Saturday, April 6th, to promote his latest novel.

“Moon of the Turning Leaves” is a sequel to “Moon of the Crusted Snow”.  Rice says it’s set ten years after a world-ending blackout, when a community was forced from its home on the shore of Lake Huron and created a new settlement. But the natural resources around them start to deplete.

“So, the characters in this place,” rice outlines, “many of them who have survived since the first story, recognize that it’s time to move on.”

What follows is a summer-long exploratory mission to see if the group can reconnect with their original homeland.

Rice says it’s really special to come back to Timmins.

“My very last public event before the pandemic was at the library, at the end of February in 2020. So, this kind of like closes a circle in some ways on this journey with the sequel.”

Rice will read from the book beginning at 2:00pm at the library.
