This month the Babble Book Club will be reading Joseph Boyden's The Orenda! Our final discussion will take place on April 22 at 8 p.m. EDT in the babble book lounge.
The Orenda is a sweeping tale about the early stages of colonization in our country. Written in a three-part narrative style, this work of historical fiction recounts the story of Bird, a Huron elder, Snow Falls, his adopted Haudensosaunee daughter and Christophe Crow, a Jesuit missionary sent into Huron territory to find converts for the French. The Orenda recently won Canada Reads, CBC's annual competition to find the book that every Canadian should read.
