Speaker Series Review – LM Montgomery and WWI

It’s well known that LM Montgomery wrote about Prince Edward Island and the red-headed orphan who made it her home, however, not as many know that Maud lived in Leaskdale, Ontario (near Uxbridge) from 1911 to 1926.  It was from the manse in Leaskdale that Maud wrote 11 books and extensively journaled.

Gwen Layton of the Lucy Maud Montgomery Society of Ontario joined us for February’s Speaker Series and shared with us the history of the Leaskdale Manse National Historic Site and how World War I affected Maud, which she wrote about in her journals.  It was a wonderful evening with a fantastic speaker and a great turn out from our membership! Thank you all!
