Project Bookmark unveiled the very first Bookmark for Prince Edward Island — a poem by L.M. Montgomery describing the view from her bedroom window on the Macneill Homestead site, where she grew up, learned to read and write, and composed hundreds of poems and short stories.

Jennie Macneill and I make sure — through a Project Bookmark plaque — people know that the Site of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Cavendish Home, also featured in the children’s book Carolyn and I launched on May 2nd, is recognized as the magical place readers know it to be. More to come.
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!
