Maple syrup, Leonard Cohen, hockey – these are Canadian icons. There is one more, very special – Anne of Green Gables, the red-haired orphan whose life in Avonlea in Prince Edward Island was described by author Lucy Maud Montgomery (aka L.M. Montgomery).The book written in 1908 has since been read by millions all over the world, generation after generation. It has been adapted as films, TV movies, and animated and live-action television series.
