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
