Canadian Book Advent Calendar (Day 11) - "K" is for Kogawa


For this year’s advent calendar, I am recommending Canadian authors/books found on Schatje’s Shelves.  Again, to make things more interesting/challenging, I will use the alphabet, skipping “X” and “Z”.  In total, I propose to focus on 50 Canadian writers, an early nod to Canada's 150th birthday next year.

“K” is for Joy Kogawa
Kogawa is a poet and novelist best known for her semi-autobiographical novel Obasan which has been named as one of the most important books in Canadian history by the Literary Review of Canada.

Novels (which I recommend):

Obasan
Itsuka
