From July 9 to July 20, CBC Radio One aired an abridged version of Canada Reads 2012 winner, Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter
, read by author Carmen Aguirre, as part of The Soundbox summer series.
The Soundbox was a 10-minute-long program, airing weeknights at 8:50 p.m. (half an hour later in Nfld and Labrador). Throughout the summer, the show presented a variety of storytelling and documentary pieces.
But if you missed the radio readings, don't worry! CBC Books has posted the complete reading online, a total of 20 episodes, which take listeners on the wild ride that is Aguirre's childhood and youth in training as a revolutionary.
