Kindred Spirits: Celebrating 100 years of Anne

June 13 marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. You can read about the book(s) at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_of_Green_Gables, visit the official 100 Years of Anne site at http://www.100yearsofanne.com/, and learn about Anne and Prince Edward Island at
http://www.anne2008.com/.

Anne Shirley is an endearing character loved by millions. You are invited to attend the library's celebration of our kindred spirit on Wednesday, June 18. Beginning at 3:00, you can make a mini scrapbook. (Montgomery was an avid scrapbooker and often drew upon her keepsakes for storylines.) Join us for dessert of liniment cake and raspberry cordial at 6:30 followed by a reading and film segment. Participants are encouraged to wear straw hats, red (or green) braids, and/or puffy sleeves. Hope to see you there!
