If a book can have a biography, Looking for Anne of Green Gables falls into this genre.
Irene Gammel delves into the magazine articles, photographs and advertisements that inspired Canadian author Lucy Maude Montgomery to write her classic children's novel. We also learn about the author's life: after her mother's death, Anne's father remarried and relocated far from Prince Edward Island where Anne grew up, raised by relatives. The author goes on to discuss the impact that the book, Anne of Green Gables has had on readers from its first publication in 1908 to the present day. Green Gables is now a National Heritage site visited by tourists from all corners of the globe.
