Karen McBride is an Algonquin Anishinaabe writer from the Timiskaming First Nation. She appears to discuss her debut novel, Crow Winter, about dreams and healing, magic and hope.

Crow Winter is the story of Hazel Ellis, who has been visited by an old crow in her dreams. The crow is asking her for something. As Hazel investigates what this could mean, she discovers an old magic awakening in the quarry on her late father's land. A thoughtful, trickster of a novel and an ambitious debut.

Hear Karen McBride discuss Crow Winter with Suzanne Methot, an educator, educational consultant and a guest lecturer.
