2008 - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables and the Idea of "Classic"
The 8th Biennial Conference, L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables, and the Idea of “Classic” was held June 25-29, 2008, in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the publication of Anne of Green Gables, the conference considered the idea of a classic and why this novel has maintained its popularity for over a century. This conference was an international celebration of imagination and creativity and for a critique of the meaning and power of the (popular) designation "classic." This conference inspired a collection of essays, Anne Around the World: L.M. Montgomery and Her Classic, edited by Jane Ledwell and Jean Mitchell.
