Project Bookmark Canada’s Board of Directors President, Don Oravac, is pleased to announce the first Bookmark on Prince Edward Island for a poem by Lucy Maud Montgomery, “The Gable Window,” set at The Site of L.M. Montgomery’s Cavendish Home. Describing the landscape outside her window, this poem was first published in The Ladies Journal in 1897, when Montgomery was 23 years of age. A cherished Canadian author, admired by readers around the world, Montgomery’s works have been translated into over 35 languages.

On July 27 in Charlottetown, PE, Project Bookmark Canada’s Executive Director, Laurie Murphy, attended the L.M. Montgomery Institute event at the University of Prince Edward Island announcing the Bookmark.

On behalf of the Project Bookmark Canada Board of Directors and its PEI community partners, Laurie Murphy invites Prince Edward Island residents, and visitors to the province, at 8521 Cavendish Rd, Cavendish, PE

There are so many lush and beautiful passages describing the Macneill place in the Anne and indeed Emily books. And right there is where the Montgomery fan experiences that ‘I know this place’ feeling and a sense of awe.
— Dr. Elizabeth Epperly
The Heirs of L.M. Montgomery are delighted that the first official Bookmark on Prince Edward Island will honour L.M. Montgomery, and will be on the Macneill site in Cavendish she loved so much — where she wrote hundreds of short stories and poems in addition to Anne of Green Gables and three other novels.
— Kate Macdonald Butler, President of the Heirs of L.M. Montgomery (Inc.)
