Native Bookshelf: ‘Moon of the Turning Leaves’ by Waubgeshig Rice
Ten years since a world-changing blackout, an Anishinaabe community must embark on a mission of discovery if they’re going to survive.

First Nations author Waubgeshig Rice revisits the survivors from his first novel, Moon of the Crusted Snow, as they search south for sustainable future in his next novel, Moon of the Turning Leaves. Join Native America Calling to learn how he works to bring hope into a post-apocalyptic story.

Plus, hear from two of Jim Thorpe’s granddaughters about the posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom for the Olympian and athletic legend.
