Moon of the Crusted Snow, Waubgeshig Rice’s daring post-apocalyptic novel, was the featured work for the annual Sheridan Reads community-wide reading experience, organized by students and employees from the Honours Bachelor of Creative Writing & Publishing program. Sheridan Writer-in-Residence Naben Ruthnum moderated a discussion on stage at Hazel McCallion Campus, delving into the creative process that brought Rice’s thrilling narrative to life.

Rice is an Anishinaabe author and journalist originally from Wasauksing First Nation. He is the former host of CBC Radio's Up North and the author of the short story collection Midnight Sweatlodge and the novel Legacy. The sequel to Moon of the Crusted Snow — Moon of the Turning Leaves — is slated for release later this year.
