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.
