Anne of Green Gables has long been a favorite of mine. I've read them as a child and an adult more times than a calculator can count, but I never really knew the story behind the author.
L.M. Montgomery's life is tragic and magic in what she was able to create out of her imposed limitations. But her life is also a warning, one that is worth understanding. Above is a small snippet about the complex life of L.M. Montgomery.
And I couldn't leave this clip behind of Patricia Polacco speaking at an elementary school. I had no idea she started writing for children when she was 41 years old. Woohoo!
Have a great first weekend of a new year.
