Life Rattle Radio Update #34

Hello Life Rattle listeners,

This Sunday, October 16, Life Rattle host Laurie Kallis will introduce two widely divergent stories by new Life Rattle writer:

Donna Kakonge.

“Church Sunday” has us tag along with a young girl who learns of charity, compassion, and spirit when she escorts her Granny, who is visiting Toronto from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, up Davenport Avenue to a Baptist church where a one-legged woman stands outside the door and the preacher leads a raucous service where more Black people than the girl has ever seen in one place shimmy and shake in the pews.

“Elephant Woman,” swirls us up in the dizzying obsession of a university student who, despite her dislike of the colour, cramps her stomach inflating green balloons, cuts her fingers stuffing invitations into green envelopes, blisters her feet hunting for the right shade of green cushions for her bed and runs up her VISA bill on a green bra and panties in a determined effort to win a gold nineteenth birthday prize—Alistar Abego—her current man of choice.

Be sure to tune in this Sunday and next, to hear stories you won’t hear anywhere else!
