Women's Classic Literature Event: Group Check-In 2
Here's the question for the second Group Check-In, and my answer.
Q: Share an interesting fact about the life of the author you’re currently reading for this event.
A: I'm currently reading Anne of Windy Poplars by L. M. Montgomery. She was born on Prince Edward Island in Canada, where she later set her most beloved book, Anne of Green Gables, and her early life was hard, much like Anne Shirley's. Her mother died when she was just a toddler, and her father didn't want to raise her, so she was raised by her maternal grandparents, who were elderly. She created imaginary friends to keep her company, much like Anne Shirley did before she came to live at Green Gables. You can read more about her here at the L.M. Montgomery Institute, or on Wikipedia here.
I've read six books for this event so far, and am nearly finished with my seventh. You can see the full list here.
