Poland joins worldwide celebrations of the birth centenary of Anne Shirley, the heroine of a series of books by the Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery.
Anne of Green Gables, the first book of the series, was published on 20 June 1908.
The Krakow-based Wydawnictwo Literackie (Literary Publishers), the Polish publisher of Montgomery’s books, organizes a special event on the eve of the anniversary.
It also sponsors a literary festival which comprises workshops for teachers, several competitions for children and a major exhibition at the Jagiellonian Library (March-June).
The Literary Publishers is also to bring out a Polish translation of Mollie Gillen’s biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery. Ann of Green Gables has been translated into 36 languages. (mk)
