Anne of Green Gables Read-a-long: Chapter III Marilla Cuthbert is Surprised

This week the LMMI welcomes writer Casey Hamilton to the Anne of Green Gables Read-a-long with "Chapter III: Matthew Cuthbert is Surprised."

***

There was a game on social media a while back, the kind where everyone is supposed to pitch in and come up with a clever-ism about a topic they give you. This one was “ruin a book synopsis in a 1 sentence.” I laughed heartily at the one that said “Elderly siblings Mathew and Marilla Cuthbert adopt the boy orphan they requested.”

In Memoriam: Father Francis Bolger (1925-2017)

 

All of us at the LMMI was deeply saddened by the death of Father Francis Bolger, a man who had dedicated much of his life to preserving the legacy of L.M. Montgomery. 

One of his close friends, Mary Beth Cavert, has written this beautiful tribute to his contribution to Prince Edward Island and Montgomery Studies. Thank you, Beth.
