Moon of the Crusted Snow: A Novel of Survival

I heard Waubgeshig Rice speak at a writers’ conference last year where he read from his newest book, Moon of the Crusted Snow. The chapter he read stuck in my mind until I read the book recently. I was hooked from the very first chapter until the epilogue. I started reading it in the evening and finished it by the next afternoon; I could not put this book down. 

Moon of the Crusted Snow is more relevant than ever, as we face previously unknown hardships in our communities due to the global pandemic. It opens with a power outage that stretches on and on, and keeps you turning pages to find out how this small community will cope with increasing challenges and survive the winter. 

Waub is currently working on a much-anticipated sequel to the book. We have invited him to read from Moon of the Crusted Snow on June 11 as part of our celebrations for National Indigenous History Month. Register online to join, listen to a great reading, and chat with the author.
