Elder Voices: Helen Larson


From summer of 2019, join Helen Larson as she returns to her childhood home of Solomon and, in turn, reflects on what home has meant to her after all these years have gone by.

With the sounds of great-grandchildren filling her pauses, Helen speaks on the fickle nature of time and how family roles shift as children grow up and become parents themselves.
