Anyone who ever met Elaine Harrison never forgets her. There is a new book  celebrating her poetry and art. In honour of those tributes we dug through our archives for a conversation Karen Mair had with Elaine in her home in Bedeque back in March of 2000. Karen started by asking Elaine Harrison where she was born.

Molly Peacock

 There's an expression that you can't teach an old dog new tricks.
But turns out we can all develop new skills and talents - and there's proof in a wonderful book called The Paper garden: Mrs Delaney Begins Her Life's Work at 72. Molly Peacock is the dynamic poet and writer behind the book. She's published 6 books of poetry, is the author of the best-selling memoir Paradise: Piece by Piece - Molly Peacock  stopped by.
