Lucy Maud Montgomery
Lucy Maud Montgomery is said to be Canada’s most widely read author. Born in Prince Edward Island in 1874, Maud was a novelist and short story writer best known for the Anne of Green Gables series, which has been translated into at least 36 languages as well as braille. Raised by her grandparents following her mother’s death and father’s departure, Maud experienced a lonely childhood but began writing on scraps of paper even as a little girl. Her vivid imagination was fueled by the beautiful Prince Edward Island surroundings, feeding her creativity and lighting a fire in her to write that would last a lifetime. Though her soul purpose was writing, Maud also gained a teacher’s license from the Prince of Wales College and later worked as a proofreader and copy editor for the Halifax Chronicle. Writing no matter where life or her work took her, Montgomery met with rejection often as she submitted her short stories and poems for publication. She persevered through what seemed like a male dominated field using different pseudonyms to hide her gender, and celebrated the victories when they came. Her work called Anne of Green Gables was rejected and placed in the attic for a year before she had a breakthrough. When it was finally published, Maud had created a character in Anne who immediately charmed readers with her vivacious personality, streak of fire, and love for the world around her. Though Montgomery faced many personal trials throughout her life, she found joy in writing and bringing that happiness to others through her published works. Montgomery was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire and the Literary and Artistic Institute of France, and declared a Person of National Historic Significance in Canada.
