About this episode’s KidLit Classic:
Anne of Green Gables, released in the early 1900s by Lucy Maud Montgomery, is a true classic of American children's literature. It was the first of many Anne books and has gone on to become a firm popular culture favourite.
In this episode CBCA Vic president and children's librarian Jo Panckridge talks about her love for this spirited, remarkable little girl, the glorious prose, the rich themes, and the book's legacy. We have a dramatic reading and Jo recommends us some of her latest reads.
