RED—The Island Storybook Volume 14RED is back with a brand new batch of your Island stories. Volume 14 will be hitting stores all over PEI the first week of June. As usual, RED offers an abundance of Island tales including Margie Carmichael’s recounting of an Urban Carmichael prank at the expense of a group of teenage hitch-hikers. RED regular Sylvia Poirier spins a lighthearted story of her first impressions attending the Charlottetown Hospital School of Nursing, complete with stern sisters and late night covert excursions to a certain famous Charlottetown night club. Author Dale Small waxes eloquent about smelt spear craftsmanship. Davy Weale draws your attention to a deep Island connection to one of the best big league baseball players in the world. And for the cover story, “Citizen Matilda,” Keith Milligan paints a vivid picture of a unique Mi’kmaq woman and her life’s journey on Lennox Island. All of that and a whole lot more. Remember, don’t leave your stories on the shelf collecting dust; send them to RED, they’re all ears. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Murray Harbour Farmers Market and the Murray Harbour Public Library will host the launch of the Spring and Summer 2017 edition of RED—The Island Storybook at 7 pm on June 2 at the Murray Harbour Community Centre. Founder David Weale and a group of storytellers and writers capture the essence of Island life, past and present, in RED—The Island Storybook. The launch will include some readings from the latest edition. Refreshments will be served.
