Annes of the World

Our first exhibit draws on the rich holdings of the Ryrie-Campbell LMMI Collection demonstrating the extraordinary global reach of Anne. While her popularity in Japan is well-known, many do not realize that Montgomery's work -- most especially Anne of Green Gables -- has been translated into more than 20 languages. This exhibit shows cover art for more than a dozen translations, in languages ranging from Arabic to Turkish.
