I Am On My Way Home

By Robert Newby, published by Metro Labour Education Centre

Bob Newby was 42 years old when he wrote his first book: the moving story about the birth of his seventh child. A member of Canadian Auto Workers Local 112, he tells why he wrote: “I never had the chance to write a story like this before. Even though I went to a trade school, no one ever took the time to teach me how to read and write. I became a skilled painter but I still didn’t know how to read or write. Thanks to the Metro Labour Education Centre, that has changed.”
