I don't understand how the weeks are passing by so quickly. It is downright scary to have days disappearing at this rate.
After reading Kate's Book Blog, I find myself needing to read the L.M. Montgomery books again. And more, I want to read Montgomery's journals (love journals and personal diaries), and something by Dr. Margaret Doody. Anne was a very important part of my growing up...and how many tens of thousands of girls (then and now) can say the same. Her work never felt dated to me; not when I read them as a child, as an adolescent, or as a parent who eagerly introduced Anne to my own children. Nor, as Kate mentions, was Montgomery's work all "sweetness and light"...Montgomery introduced subjects that were extremely unusual for her time period.
Kate is fortunate enough to be able to attend the 7th International Conference on L.M. Montgomery and will hopefully keep us updated. She's already reported on Doody's presentation. Here is an excellent entry into L.M.'s world.
