Product Description

Volume 8 of Red Magazine – The Island Storybook, edited by David Weale, highlights Island life and culture.

This current issue contains stories by frequent contributors including John Brehaut, Gary Evans, Gerry Hopkirk, Sharon Myers, Ed MacDonald, Philip MacDonald, Jenny MacDougall, Ian Petrie, Reg Porter, and David Weale.

There is an open letter by Stephen Merrill to the Chief Medical Officer of PEI, entitled ‘The Dead Fish have Spoken’; a heart-warming tribute to a favourite hunting dog by Dale Small; a satirical piece called ‘The Line’, by Frazer Smith, on the decision of the Federal Government to divide the Island into two EI zones; a piece on the Islander who might have been President of the US except for one thing; and a RED Brick tossed in the direction of all those dyed in the wool Tories and Grits who already know how they will vote next election, and the one after that.

Michael Conway recalls Sunday afternoon hockey games at the old Charlottetown Forum; Joseph Killorn recalls being shot as a young teenager; Sylvia Poirier recalls episodes from her youth in Miscouche in a new series called ‘Convent Girl’; Wayne MacKinnon recalls the coming of the pavement; Lorraine Clements recalls the boarders at 108 King Street; Arlene McGuigan recalls the dreariest day of the year; Lee Currie recalls behind the scenes activities at the opening of Confederation Centre in 1964, and Chef Michael Smith shares his favourite chowder recipe.

Back issues of Red Magazine are also available.

    Would really like to have a copy of this issue… Do you expect it to back in print sometime in the future?

      Unfortunately, the publisher has sold out as well, and does not have any plans to reprint it. Sorry!
