Description


2008 is the 100th anniversary of Anne of Green Gables.
Anne Shirley, Mark Twain observed, is "the dearest and most loveable child in fiction since the immortal Alice," and like the elderly Cuthberts, who had hoped to adopt a boy instead of the spunky red-headed girl, generations of readers have grown to love the impetuous orphan. 2008 is the hundredth anniversary of the publication of this much loved classic.

About the Author


Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton (now New London), Prince Edward Island, in 1874. Her first novel, "Anne of Green Gables" (1908), was followed by more than twenty others. Long after her death, in 1942, she remains one of Canada's most beloved writers.
