EVELYN LATORRE: BETWEEN INCA WALLS

BIG BLEND RADIO INTERVIEW: Author Evelyn LaTorre discusses her world travels and memoir, “Between Inca Walls.” Listen to the interview on Spreaker.com, SoundCloud.com, YouTube.com, or on BlogTalkRadio.com.  

To say writer and educator Evelyn Kohl LaTorre has been around the world would be an understatement — she’s visited over 100 countries and counting! But this wanderlust first blossomed at an early age with her love affair with Latin American culture and a yearning for a life full of purpose, passion, and adventure, all detailed in her new memoir, “Between Inca Walls.”

In 1964, LaTorre becomes a volunteer for the newly formed Peace Corps and is sent to a rural mountain town in the Andes of Peru, where she and her roommate find a new sense of liberation and empowerment while discovering their place within the community. Over the course of 18 months, LaTorre teaches indigenous children in schools with dirt floors, trains shoeless students for marching competitions, and infuses herself in peasant farmer politics, all the while falling in love with a local university student. And with this newfound romance, LaTorre fights an ongoing battle between head and heart: Does she adhere to the restrictive structures of her religious youth, or does she follow her passions toward an endless path of possibility?

LaTorre’s poignant narrative takes readers on a journey across both international borders and social barriers, as well as among languages, traditions, and cultures. Her emotional chronicles will speak to adventurers of every age, as well as those seeking transformation of their own. More: https://www.evelynlatorre.com/
