Kind words from Michelle MacCallum. Thank you for putting Dr. Epperly’s Power Notes on your summer reading list!
I was thrilled when the L.M. Institute committee, in celebrating its 25th anniversary and unbeknownst to me, decided to name one of its new awards in my honour! This photograph, by Anne Victoria Photography, shows the adjudicating committee and first recipient for the first-ever ” Dr. Elizabeth R. Epperly Award for Outstanding Early Career Paper.”

Montgomery Studies, Applied Communication, Leadership, and Culture.
Dr. Epperly and her sister, Carolyn, were interviewed by The Guardian about their new book, Summer in the Land of Anne.
Carolyn and I were interviewed on CBC by Angela Walker on May 2nd in anticipation of the launching of Summer in the Land of Anne.
My sister and I have an illustrated story book (sixteen original paintings!) coming out with Acorn Press on Prince Edward Island! The story is about two sisters in Virginia who travel to PEI after their mother reads them Anne of Green Gables. Exploring the Land of Anne, six-year-old Elspeth and eleven-year-old Willa discover something new and powerful about reading and imagining.
Please join us for our book launch!
Twenty-five years ago today (April 26, 1993) we launched the L.M. Montgomery Institute at UPEI with a huge “hooray”!
