CBC’s Shelagh Rogers interviewed Kate for The Next Chapter. In this 17 minute conversation, they talk about FOREST GREEN, family stories, logging, and memory.
“Forest Green is loosely based on my uncle Art, my mother’s brother. He spent most of his life, after he served his time in the army during the Second World War, as a logger in logging camps moving around the province. He was a larger-than-life character in my childhood who would only make occasional appearances. But he would always arrive with a great flurry — with a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of whiskey — and a great fuss would always be made of him.”
