You are cordially invited to join me in celebrating the author L. M. Montgomery and her creations! From Anne of Green Gables to The Blue Castle, from Emily of New Moon to Jane of Lantern Hill, Lucy Maud Montgomery created some of the most-beloved characters and stories of the twentieth century. February 20 through 24, we will spend five whole days sharing our appreciation of this wonderful writer and her creations.
Between 1908 and 1939, LMM published twenty novels. And then there are her hundreds and hundreds of short stories and poems, too! Not to mention all the movie and television adaptations of her works that have brought her characters to life. We certainly have plenty to celebrate!
Whether you've loved LMM's books for decades or are relatively new to her work, and whether you've read all of her books or only know her characters from a filmed adaptation, I want you to join the fun! How? By contributing your reviews of her books and their adaptations. Or you could write a post about how much she's meant to you. A list of your favorite characters or stories. Or anything else you can come up with!
Below is the sign-up list for participants -- if you don't know what you want to contribute, you can just comment saying you want to do something. I'm not limiting how many people can review a specific work; if we get ten different people reviewing Anne of Green Gables, that will be perfectly fine! But it would be especially cool if we could get a good variety of topics so that people who are newer to L. M. Montgomery's work could get ideas of new things they might want to read and watch. (Note: if you just want to fill out the blog tag, you don't need to sign up to do that.)
Please use one of these buttons on your own blog to let people know about this event. The more, the merrier!
