When writers and storytellers are forced to hunker down in their abodes during a pandemic, they have a lot of time to put stories on paper, and volume 23 of RED: The Island Storybook has the proof.

This volume of RED presents stories from six new authors, as well as many of the usual suspects.

David MacKenzie takes the reader on a vivid trip down memory lane, painting an eloquent picture of lush landscapes in his piece titled “To the Ponds.”

Richard Schroeter recounts his heart-breaking experience of coming to terms with his brown skin-tone at the tender age of seven in his deeply personal story, “Marshfield Beavers.”

High school senior, Madeline Reddick, shares her story of a cross-country trip to her new and beloved home, the Island, in a piece titled “Bridging the Gap.”

Don Wilson pitched in with a harrowing story of narrowly avoiding catastrophe while piloting a training flight aboard a P2V-7 Neptune, in “Very Bad to Considerably Worse.”

All of this and a whole lot more in volume 23 of RED: The Island Storybook.
