Snapshots in History: April 24: Remembering L.M. Montgomery (1874-1942)

April 24, 2013 | John P. | Comments (0)

On April 24, let us pause to pay tribute to Canadian children’s author Lucy Maud Montgomery (born: November 30, 1874) who passed away on April 24, 1942. Her fiction works, especially Anne of Green Gables, are well-known the world over and have been translated into many languages. However, let us focus on Maud’s inner thoughts as expressed through her complete journals, edited by academics Mary Henley Rubio and Elizabeth Hillman Waterston and covering the 1889-1911 time period when she was living in Prince Edward Island thus far, now available in Toronto Public Library collections as follows:
