Winner of one of the biggest awards in Canadian literature (Governor General Award), Pamela Porter is a humble person. Not letting her past achievements get to her head, Porter continues to work hard and soar as a poet.
Meeting Porter was a pleasure. Practicing patience, Porter walked to Christie Pits with me for a taping of her reading my favorite poem in her collection Cathedral: Lamento.
Enjoy Pamela Porter read Lamento.
