Reflecting on the "Anne-Girl."

The Library and Archives Canada is holding an exhibition through March 2009 on a national (and international) icon: Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. Because Anne-with-an-E turns 100 this year, Canada Post will issue special Anne stamps tomorrow, and Prince Edward Island, Anne Shirley's home, plans a year-long celebration. There will be a conference in October, "From Canada to the World: The Cultural Influence of Lucy Maud Montgomery," at the University of Guelph, a major depository for Montgomery's papers.
