Eddy Quinn grew up surrounded by folk music and natural born storytellers near the village of Cardigan, PEI. Songs and yarns were shared across the table of Island kitchens as often as farm labor was traded between neighbors. Eddy’s love of stories and his affection for the people he encounters is evident in his second book. Island Characters Volume 2 is a collection of 52 short stories, and is a follow-up to his popular first literary release. His book shines a light on the personalities of some notable Islanders who – in Eddy’s words – “Each, in their own way, made significant contributions to life on Prince Edward Island.” From, Bobby Fraser, the man on the cover who was renowned for his wrestling match with a bear, to a “not so popular” high school teacher, to a famous local fiddler with an affinity for telling ghost stories, the “Island Characters” in this book will provide the readers with an authentic slice of Island life.
“Eddy Quinn is a student of people and an expert storyteller and he loves the characters found in PEI. Wonderful read.” – Paul MacNeill, Publisher of The Eastern Graphic Newspaper
