About the Author
Lucy Maud Montgomery was a Canadian author best known for writing the classic Anne of Green Gables series. First introduced in 1908, the character of the redheaded orphan Anne Shirley was an immediate and enduring success. The books have sold in excess of 50 million copies in more than 30 languages. The books' setting of Prince Edward Island continues to be a landmark for literary pilgrimage. Montgomery published 20 novels and hundreds of short stories and poems in her lifetime.
Benjamin Lefebvre, editor of The L.M. Montgomery Library, is director of L.M. Montgomery Online. His publications include an edition of Montgomery's rediscovered final book, The Blythes Are Quoted, and the three-volume critical anthology The L.M. Montgomery Reader, which won the 2016 PROSE Award for Literature from the Association of American Publishers. He lives in Kitchener, Ontario.
Reviews

"In this first volume of 'The L.M. Montgomery Library, ' Benjamin Lefebvre collects and expertly annotates Montgomery's non-fiction periodical writing, presenting it as a record of her literary apprenticeship ... The thirty-five instalments of her column 'Around the Table, ' signed 'Cynthia, ' are enthralling, ... and A Name for Herself is worth the cover price for these pieces alone."


"Lefebvre, one of the top Montgomery scholars in the world, has painstakingly collected these scattered publications from throughout Montgomery's career to provide a valuable resource ... By including Montgomery's contributions to these publications, many of which were fleeting, Lefebvre enriches our knowledge of the periodical landscape in North America and demonstrates how these magazines and newspapers were important vehicles for women authors in Canada and the United States."


"In this rich volume, Lefebvre's selections reveal Montgomery as a professional writer who deserves a strong and enduring presence in Canadian letters."
