Booklovers’ Cafe – Corky Parker

(First airdate: August 3, 2021) Host Cris Wilson welcomes Corky Parker to Booklovers’ Cafe. Corky introduces her memoir La FInca: Love, Loss, and Laundry on a Tiny Puerto Rican Island. At age 40, Parker surrendered to her Swept Away-meets-Swiss Family Robinson fantasy of running an inn far from her home in the Pacific Northwest. She bought a group of cabins built by women in the hills of a small island in the Caribbean, and for the next 20+ years she and her family split their time between Seattle, and what became La Finca Caribe, their eco-lodge in Vieques, Puerto Rico.
