The Island Storybook
March edition

RED: The Island Storybook—March 2018RED: The Island Storybook will now be published quarterly—mid-March, early July, early November.

The March edition introduces a new feature called Keepsake which will feature a portrait of an Island senior holding a cherished keepsake, along with the story of why that object is precious to them. The first Islander in the series is well-known heritage activist Catherine Hennessey from Charlottetown, and the object she chose was a tool used by her physician father.

Another article is a reminiscence by Sylvia Poirier of her early encounters as a student nurse with pediatrician Dr. John Hubert ‘Sock’ O’Hanley.

Whore of a Day, a new series, recounts the adventures of Islanders that arose because of stormy or inclement weather. One adventurer recalls a harrowing trip to the bootlegger in the midst of the infamous White Juan snowstorm.

A third series being introduced is entitled Scrappers: Fight Culture of the Island and leading off is the always popular RED contributor, Dale Small with a story called “My Brother: The Blue-eyed Scrapper.”

And what are the chances of walking into a hotel lobby and accidently getting to meet seven of the greatest hockey legends of all time, including “Rocket” Richard, Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull. Gerry Hopkirk tells that story.

RED: The Island Storybook is available at bookstores and retail outlets across PEI or can be ordered at
