“Montgomery and Anne”
The Canadian Embassy's E.H. Norman Library Speaker Series introduces Canada through its books, authors and arts.
In this 100th anniversary year of the publication of Anne of Green Gables, a wide variety of commemorative events, TV programs and book publications have taken place throughout Japan. The beloved, much read novel has lost none of its charm as time and generations come and go. It continues revitalizing readers with the power and conviction to live as themselves.
We have invited Kate Macdonald Butler, granddaughter of author Lucy Maud Montgomery, to bring this commemorative year to a close with a special lecture. She will focus on remembrances of her grandmother not just as a great author but also as a woman who was staunchly protective of her family. Our event will also feature a dialogue between Ms. Butler and Eri Muraoka, granddaughter of Hanako Muraoka, who introduced the book to Japan by translating it during the dark days of World War II.
You are cordially invited to attend.
