LMMI Visiting Scholar Co-Edits new edition of Rilla

The L.M. Montgomery Institute congratulates Visiting Scholar Dr. Benjamin Lefebvre, and his co-editor, Dr. Andrea McKenzie (NYU), on the recent publishing of the restored and annotated edition of Rilla of Ingleside.  Originally published in 1921 as the final sequel to Anne of Green Gables, the new edition includes an introduction by the editors, a detailed glossary, maps, and war poems by L.M. Montgomery and her contemporary Virna Sheard.

Continental Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. each morning in MacDougall Hall

"Marilla, isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?"

Registration for Conference starts at 5:30 p.m. in MacDougall Hall

We're going to get started with registration a little earlier this evening. Rather than 7:00 p.m., we should be getting set up around 5:30 p.m. 

We'll see you there!
