Howdy REDheads! We’re pleased to announce the launch of milestone volume #30 of RED. As usual, we’ve got a stellar line-up of authors on board, and sixty-four pages packed full of finely spun Island tales.
There is humour aplenty in Justin Shaw’s story of the day his father took him to ride a go-cart, and some of us here at RED laughed out loud when we read, “My father walked over to me and caught me crying in the go-cart and said, “Oh quit your sooking.” Which was his way of saying “I love you.”
In this issue we are very happy to launch a new series by Island naturalist Kate MacQuarrie called WILD ISLAND, and to print a heart-warming little story of a thirteen hour Christmas crossing on the Abegweit.
There is as well a poignant and personal story by editor Davy called MAKING BABIES, and a ‘Keepsake’ interview with the amazing 101 year old Denise Arsenault of Wellington.
There is also a first-person account by Michael Brothers of rescue actions that took place on July 22, 2022 the day the ferry was afire just off shore in Wood Islands.
Hope you enjoy reading volume 30 as much as we enjoyed putting it together. Happy reading REDheads!
