This week's episode features the first winner of our So You Think You Can Talk Books contest. Katharine Childs won us over with her compelling pitch for Thomas King's novel Truth and Bright Water, and this week she discusses that book on The Next Chapter with writer Drew Hayden Taylor. You can listen to their conversation here, beginning at 36:44.
Truth and Bright Water is set in the prairies during one long hot summer. It's so evocative of the summer, it makes you feel like slipping on sandals and slurping a half-melted popsicle, regardless of what the weather is like.
We're giving away three copies of Truth and Bright Water. It's easy to enter your name in the draw. Just go to The Next Chapter's Facebook page and tell us what book gives you a summer feeling. We'll randomly select three winners on Monday, June 6.
