Toronto Reads: Richard Wagamese, "Indian Horse"
Indian Horse, by Richard Wagamese is representing British Columbia and the North for Canada Reads. It's being championed by Olympic wrestler Carol Huynh in the debates that begin next week. At our Toronto Celebrates Canada Reads event, our champion for the book was Don Kelly. He hosted CBC's program Trailbreakers, about aboriginal leaders in different fields. That made him the perfect person to talk to CBC host Mary Ito about Saul Indian Horse, the aboriginal hockey player who is the centre of Richard Wagamese' novel. Listen (runs 8:15)
