EPISODE DESCRIPTION

While pregnant with their first child, Vancouver poet and novelist Pamela Porter and her husband travelled to Nicaragua and Guatemala to document the experiences of people caught in the Contra war and the government-sponsored terror against Guatemalan teachers and aid workers. Later, with two children, they worked in Angola and Ghana, where Pamela taught English during the day, and at night they delivered food to homeless children. These experiences inform her collection Cathedral.

Note: Thanks to gremlin-like activity, the audio file of Pamela’s reading was corrupted (fume, curse). Luckily the interview survived.
