Home Plate, Blue Helmet is published by Island Studies Press

Charlottetown’s Mike Conway will speak about his book Home Plate, Blue Helmet at the next OpenPages event, Wednesday, April 26, at 7:00 pm in UPEI’s Robertson Library. The public is warmly invited. Light refreshments will be served and Conway’s book will 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, 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.
