We re-connect with a caller and the story of her fridge.

 

Then we open the lines to you. When has a thing -- a toy, a ring, a piece of clothing -- come to symbolize something special to you?

 

Our guest is Bernice Eisenstein, Toronto artist and author of I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors. Her new book, Correspondences with novelist and poet Anne Michaels, has been shortlisted for the 2014 Griffin Poetry Prize. The winners will be announced June 5th.
