Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, siblings in their fifties and sixties, had decided to adopt a boy from the orphanage to help Matthew run their farm. They live at Green Gables, their Avonlea farmhouse on Prince Edward Island. Through a misunderstanding, the orphanage sends Anne Shirley.Those of you who fell in love with Anne of Green Gables when it first appeared on PBS back in 1986 may be interested to know that it is once again being filmed, this time as an 8-part series. It will be available in Canada and on Netflix in 2017. I imagine at some point after, it will also be available on DVD and we will add it to our collection.
Until then, revisit the 1986 film found in DVD ANN, or go back to the original series of books by L. M. Montgomery [J MON] and refresh your memory. Or even better, if you're new to the classic, there's plenty of time for you, too, to make the acquaintance of Anne Shirley and the citizens of Prince Edward Island!
