| Long before there was an Emily, even before there was a 'Story Girl', there was
Anne of Green Gables. Written in 1908 by acclaimed Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables has been translated into seventeen languages, made into numerous movies and has had continuous success as a stage play and musical. Originally written as a serial for a Sunday School Gazette, Maud's stories of "Anne", "Marilla", "Matthew" and "Green Gables" have found world wide acclaim and are still popular reading almost 100 years later.
In 1986, Kevin Sullivan and Trudy Grant gave a young Canadian actress, Megan Follows, the role of a lifetime. That of Anne Shirley in their beloved version of Anne of Green Gables. Two more Sullivan "Anne" films later followed, "Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel" in 1987 and "Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story", in 2000.
This page is in honour of those films, Miss Follows and naturally of Lucy Maud Montgomery's dear kindred spirit to all, Anne of Green Gables.
