Virtual Exhibits

Anne 2008

As we join with Montgomery scholars and admirers the world over in celebrating the 2008 Centennial of Anne of Green Gables, we are pleased to offer a series of Virtual Exhibits highlighting elements of the L.M. Montgomery Collections at the University of Prince Edward Island Library.


Annes of the World
(Posted February, 2008)

Our first exhibit draws on the rich holdings of the Ryrie-Cambell L.M. Montgomery Institute Collection to demonstrate the extraordinary global reach of Anne. While Anne's popularity in Japan is well-known (a later exhibit will focus on Japanese-language Montgomeriana), many do not realize that Montgomery's work -- most especially Anne of Green Gables -- has been translated into more than 20 languages. This exhibit shows cover art for more than a dozen Anne of Green Gables translations, in languages ranging from Arabic to Turkish.
