Canadian Book Advent Calendar (Day 23) - "W" is for Wagamese, Warren and Wright


For this year’s advent calendar, I am recommending Canadian authors/books found on Schatje’s Shelves.  Again, to make things more interesting/challenging, I will use the alphabet, skipping “X” and “Z”.  In total, I propose to focus on 50 Canadian writers, an early nod to Canada's 150th birthday next year.

“W” is for Richard Wagamese
Wagamese is an author and journalist from the Ojibway Wabasseemoong First Nation in northwestern Ontario.

Novels (which I recommend):

"W" is for Dianne Warren
Warren is a Saskatchewan novelist, dramatist and short story writer.

Novels (which I recommend):

Cool Water (winner of 2010 Governor-General’s Award and nominee for Giller Prize)

*************

“W” is for Richard B. Wright
Wright has been noted for his ability to create believable female characters.

Novels (which I recommend):
 Clara Callan (winner of 2001 Governor-General’s Award and Giller Prize)
Adultery
