SUDBURY – Waubgeshig Rice is spending a good chunk of his days now working on a sequel to his national bestseller.
Rice, an author and journalist who is a member of Wasauksing First Nation, had his third book, Moon of the Crusted Snow, published back in 2018.
The book, about an apocalyptic story that also focuses on the survival and resilience of Indigenous people, was a huge success, to the extent it surprised Rice himself.
“No, not at all,” Rice said about whether he anticipated how well his book would be received. “I did not anticipate that. I feel very fortunate that the book has garnered so much attention and a bit of acclaim.”
