Halloween Book Launch for Waubgeshig Rice’s “Moon of the Turning Leaves”

October 31, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us at Audreys on Halloween night for the launch of Waubgeshig Rice’s “Moon of the Turning Leaves”, the much anticipated sequel to his 2018 novel “Moon of the Crusted Snow”!

In the years since a mysterious cataclysm caused a permanent blackout that toppled infrastructure and thrust the world into anarchy, Evan Whitesky has led his community in remote northern Canada off the rez and into the bush, where they’ve been rekindling their Anishinaabe traditions, isolated from the outside world. But resources around their new settlement are drying up, and elders warn that they cannot stay indefinitely.

Evan and his teenaged daughter, Nangohns, are chosen to lead a scouting party to seek new beginnings, and discover what kind of life—and what danger—still exists in the lands to the south.
