Lucy Maud Montgomery and Anne

L.M. Montgomery achieved international fame in her lifetime, putting Prince Edward Island and Canada on the map. She published some 500 short stories and poems and twenty novels. Nineteen of the novels were set on Prince Edward Island.

"Anne of Green Gables" was published in 1908 and is the story of a orphaned girl sent to live on Prince Edward Island. The book and its several sequels enjoy international readership and inspired a successful television series, “Road to Avonlea”. The popularity of the Anne character has had a significant influence on the tourism trade in PEI.

L. M. Montgomery's book,"Emily of New Moon", was also developed into a TV series.
