Thomas King - Inconvenient Indian

(Random House Canada)

If your New Year's resolution is to read more, if you're looking to expand your reading horizons, or if you just like talking about books, you can get your literary fix by joining the new CBC K-W book club.

Each month, we'll select a book to read, and hold an online noon chat that you can join from your computer or mobile device.

We'll be focusing on Canadian books — both fiction and non-fiction — and especially any authors with a connection to Waterloo Region.

Our first book is The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King. The book was a finalist in 2013 for both the Trillium Award and the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Non-Fiction. 

Here's the replay of our noon live chat on Tuesday, January 21st with ​Alannah D'Ailly, manger of library collections at the Waterloo Public Library and Mandy Brouse, co-owner of Words Worth Books.

Our next book is Cassie Stocks' Dance, Gladys, Dance, and we'll be chatting at noon on Februrary 25th.
