The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

This event is all about Anne!

It’s no surprise that we love Anne of Green Gables! So, we’re very excited to host an afternoon of children’s activities for Anne fans like us.

Lucy Maud Montgomery’s granddaughter, Kate Macdonald, will first delight children with a cooking class. Kids will learn how to make raspberry cordial and discover the story behind the beverage. Kate will also be happy to sign copies of her Anne of Green Gables Cookbook.

We will then invite everyone to meet Kelly Hill, author and illustrator of Anne’s Colours and Anne’s Numbers. Kelly will showcase her Anne-inspired embroidery and fabric crafts. With Kelly’s help, children will create and take home their own Anne and Gilbert paper dolls!

Make a date with your kindred spirit to come to Blue Heron Studio on October 26, from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm!  Feel free to dress in your pinafore and red braids and have your picture taken with LMM’s granddaughter!
