Kate Scroggie reading her stories
Tonight, on Life Rattle No. 1195, we bring you two Life Rattle Classics written and read by Kate Scroggie.
This week I searched through the Life Rattle archive of stories on cassette tape, looking for material suitable to acknowledge upcoming St. Patrick’s Day. Kate Scroggie’s story, “Big Potatoes,” caught my eye. I connected the potatoes, to the Great Famine, to the Irish, to St. Paddy. Though the connection to St. Patrick’s day is a bit of a stretch, I did rediscover some fine writing.
In these two stories, Scroggie's elegant prose completely engages us through the narrators viewing of a religious television program, and retelling of a surprising visitor at a tree planting camp.
So please, if you are out there Kate Scroggie, get in touch with us!
