Richard Wagamese is a 51 year-old Ojibway from the Wabasseemoong First Nation in northwestern Ontario. Following a distinguished journalism career in which he became the first Native Canadian to win a National Newspaper Award for Column Writing, he moved into the realm of fiction writing.

The result was the award-winning bestseller Keeper’n Me in 1994, published by Doubleday Canada Ltd. This was followed by an anthology of his newspaper columns, The Terrible Summer in 1996 from Warwick Press and his second novel, A Quality of Light, in 1997 from Doubleday. A memoir entitled For Joshua: an Ojibway Father Teaches His Son arrived in October 2002. His third novel, Dream Wheels, was published by Doubleday in 2006 to be followed by a fourth, Ragged Company, in 2007.

Rob,
I teach at Fort St. James Secndary and wondered if bringing my English 12 class (9 tudents max)into PG to hear Richard Wagamese would be possible or suitable. We've have just begun reading Keeper n' Me. Could you contact me at cimiller@mail.sd91.bc.ca ASAP.
Thanks
Cindy Miller
