This week on And The Winner Is... 'Northwords'.  Shelagh Rogers host of the CBC book show The Next Chapter  invited five Canadian authors on a journey to Torngat Mountains National Park. A beautiful and remote stretch of wilderness in the northern region of Newfoundland and Labrador.

 

To make things interesting, she presented them with a task: to soak in the place, get inspired, and then channel it into a piece of writing.


The Next Chapter - Northwords sized.jpgThe five authors were Joseph Boyden, Alissa York, Rabindranath Maharaj, Noah Richler, and Sarah Leavitt.

 

They accepted Shelagh's challenge and followed her on what turned out to be an award-winning literary adventure.


This special edition of The Next Chapter received a Bronze Medal at the 2012 New York Festivals.
