Canadian Book Reading for Children

"Anne of Green Gables"

Anne of Green Gables, the richly imaginative novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery, unfolds in the beautiful natural setting of Prince Edward Island in Eastern Canada. Hanako Muraoka introduced the story to Japan with her famous translation in 1952, which is now enjoying a resurgence in popularity thanks to the NHK morning drama "Hanako to Anne". This beloved novel has lost none of its charm and the confident spirit of Anne offers inspiration that still resonates in modern times.

For this session, we will welcome special guest Ms. Kate Macdonald Butler, granddaughter of author Lucy Maud Montgomery, who will be able to share her stories about Anne of Green Gables and her grandmother.

After the book reading session, you can become "Anne" with Anne's hat. Don't forget to bring your camera!

NB: As this month's selection is not a picture book, the level may not be suitable for younger participants. Thank you for your understanding.
