The Kindred Spirits exhibition will be a juried collection of book artistry created by members of CBBAG. Scheduled to launch in conjunction with the LMM Institute's 2024 biennial conference, this 40-piece exhibition will begin mid-June 2024 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The Kindred Spirits exhibition will travel to five additional locations across Canada for a duration of 18 months.
Lucy Maud Montgomery, best known for authoring the Anne of Green Gables series of books, is a Canadian of historical significance.
CBBAG will be honoring her 150th birthday with this traveling exhibit next year. Lucy Maud was a prolific writer of novels and essays, as well as an avid chronicler of her time. Today's scholars continue to be inspired by her diaries, journals, and photography, which detail her views on such topics as orphaned children, motherhood, and the importance of educating girls. In addition to war (especially World War I), she also wrote extensively about mental illness. Lucy Maud Montgomery was more than just the stories she wrote about that precocious redhead from PEI!
