Next week: Emily of New Moon

Hi everyone! The summer's ending soonish, and it's now time to start on our last series of the summer. I hope many of you will join me in discussing Emily of New Moon on Sunday, August 14.

Lucy Maud Montgomery started working on Emily right after Rilla of Ingleside, and the first book was published in 1923. The author has often said that Emily is her favorite heroine, possibly because they're much alike (orphans, hard childhoods with unloving relatives, intense desire/need to write). I personally loved reading these books when I was around 13, but I haven't revisited them since, and I can't wait to see how they hold up. Hope to see you there!
