Story of ‘Green Gables’ Author Told in Heritage Minute

Submitted by Tyee Staff, 9 Apr 2018

The latest of Historica Canada’s Heritage Minutes tells the story of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the P.E.I. author best known for Anne of Green Gables.

Montgomery’s own words, taken from her journals, narrate the minute. We are introduced to her imagination, but also her battles with depression, rejection and sexism as a woman and author at the turn of the 20th century.

Watch the Heritage Minute on Montgomery above. Like all the others in the series, it’s a brief glimpse into history, but a vivid one.
