Award-winning journalist and Knowledge Network host Shelagh Rogers leads five of Canada's top writers - Joseph Boyden, Alissa York, Noah Richler, Sarah Leavitt, and Rabindranath Maharaj - on a literary expedition to remote northern Labrador to explore and seek inspiration. As they navigate the harsh and stunning terrain of Torngat Mountains National Park, they learn about issues facing the north today, and confront some of the dark moments in its recent past. Through interviews, emotional moments and encounters with wildlife, Northwords explores the idea of the North and shows what happens when the country’s best writers tackle one of its most overwhelmingly beautiful places.
