How We Celebrated L.M. Montgomery in 2017

2017 was such an amazing year for L.M. Montgomery, that it inspired CBC to call it the year of Anne of Green Gables.

It was such a great idea, that we thought we would put together our own list. 2017 saw the publications of a number of Montgomery-related books, as well as conferences and special days celebrating her work across the country.

Here’s just a few (in no particular order):

Elizabeth Rollins Epperly on Her New Memoir: Power Notes

The LMMI is honoured to have this exclusive post by our longtime member and founder of the institute, Dr. Elizabeth Rollins Epperly, who discusses three reasons why she decided to write and publish her memoir, Power Notes: Leadership By Analogy. Epperly was the fourth president of UPEI and was the first student to register at the newly amalgamated UPEI in 1969. A native of Virginia, she came to Canada because of her love for L.M. Montgomery's writing. She is a scholar, curator, and author. Some of her books include, The Fragrance of Sweet-Grass: L.M. Montgomery's Heroine's and the Pursuit of Romance (2014), Imagining Anne: The Island Scrapbooks of L.M. Montgomery (2008), and Through Lover's Lane: L.M. Montgomery's Photography and Visual Imagination (2007). You can find out more about her at
