Author Jane Urquhart shares her sense of place - Northwestern Ontario!

"Nothing happens nowhere". That's a quote from author Jane Urquhart. She was born and spent the first 5 years of her life in Little Long Lac, near Geraldton. Her book "Away" is representing Ontario in this year's Canada Reads:Turf Wars. Urquhart was in Thunder Bay with Richard Wagamese (his book Indian Horse is representing British Columbia)for a special Canada Reads event. It celebrated their mutual connection to northwesern Ontario.
Jane Urquhart told Voyage North host Cathy Alex how those early years in this region continue to shape and influence her writing.
