From 1978 - 81, regionally-centred hosts interviewed writers of the day.
An interview with Acadian author Antonine Maillet, who wrote 'La Sagouine' and 'Pelagie la Charrette'.
Maillet discusses why she calls herself North American, and how she writes stories. She speaks about the character of La Sagouine and how it shares commonality with its author and how she wrote 'Pelagie', not intending at the time to write the history of Acadia.
Maillet also comments on how it is that the life that she has led is some sort of answer to the question that one of her youung characters asks, about what women can do, if they are not spinsters or mother or nuns and the liberation she felt when she first started to write in Acadian.
