Anne of Green Gables turns 100 this month! This article by Margaret Atwood (another one of my favorites) brought back so many of the things I loved about Anne Shirley and her grand entry to Avonlea. I got into the PBS series from the moment it first aired--I'm sure due to my parents' encouragement. Any other Anne-with-an-e's out there know that gives you an automatic kinship--makes you kindred souls, if you will. Then of course I read the book, watch, read, repeat. Atwood is right--the adult Anne in the following books isn't the same, nor is Avonlea, but the original title is enough to satisfy.
