Canada Reads panellist Greg Johnson donating copies of Precious Cargo, The Marrow Thieves to 2 Sask. schools
Campbell Collegiate Institute in Regina, Sask., which Johnson's daughter Olivia Johnson attends, will receive 25 copies of Craig Davidson's memoir Precious Cargo. The book recounts the year the author spent driving a school bus for students with special needs.
Johnson also announced that Dene High School in the northwestern Saskatchewan community of La Loche will receive 25 copies of fellow Canada Reads finalist Cherie Dimaline's The Marrow Thieves. The dystopian YA novel is centred on a surrogate family of Indigenous people being chased through the wilderness for their bone marrow.
