Episode 018: Trickster Drift

Thanks for joining us! This month we’re discussing Trickster Drift the by Eden Robinson, chosen by author and WPL Writer-in-Residence alumnus Jordon Wheeler, who joined us as a guest host, for which we are very grateful!

Trickster Drift is the second book in a trilogy by Eden Robinson (we read the first book Son of a Trickster last year, remember that? Good times.) Now, we catch up with Jared as he moves from Kitimat to Vancouver for school, and finds he is still a magnet for magic. And more mundane trouble as well.
