Published on April 20, 2017

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Charlottetown author Mike Conway will speak about his book, “Home Plate, Blue Helmet,” at OpenPages.

The next event is Wednesday, April 26, 7 p.m. in UPEI’s Robertson Library. The public is invited for light refreshments, while Conway’s book will also be available for sale and signing.

OpenPages takes place in the new lounge on the main floor of the Robertson Library and features local authors discussing what inspired them, what they learned and what they want to share.

Conway grew up in Charlottetown’s historic north and east ends, in neighbourhoods full of colorful characters, hard-working families and close-knit friendships.

The stories in his book bring to life the joys and hardships, loyalties and eccentricities, and traditions and transformations he experienced growing up.
