Author Nancy Elliot Sydnam on her memoir, "Sideways Rain"

2013-06-18 by

“Sideways Rain” is Dr. Nancy Elliot Sydnam’s memoir recounting 20 years of travel in the stormy Aleutian and Pribilof Islands. Besides her work as a dedicated medical practitioner, Sydnam is an emphatic observer of human nature. In journal entries, letters and poems, she writes with deep affection about the landscape and people she encountered on her hazardous routes. Also included in “Sideways Rain” are photos, a map of the islands and an index of names.

In this podcast, Dr. Nancy Elliot Sydnam shares excerpts from her memoir. Diddy Hitchens, a friend of Nancy’s and a professor emerita from UAA, also reads passages.

This podcast was recorded at the UAA Campus Bookstore on April 16, 2013.
