L M Montgomery and the First World War

  • 16 September 2015 6-8pm

Internationally-famous Atlantic Canadian writer L.M. Montgomery penned twenty novels in the period 1908-1939, most significantly the iconic Anne of Green Gables (1908). In addition, she kept copious journals throughout her life which offer great insight into the mind of this prolific writer and reveal her often strong opinions about current affairs. The First World War erupted early on in her writing career, and her journals and fiction demonstrate her worries, concerns, and emotions surrounding this devastating conflict. This FREE seminar will provide an opportunity to look at an exhibition about L.M. Montgomery and the First World War, followed by a talk from Dr. Laura Robinson.
