L.M. Montgomery

Today marks the birthday of L.M. Montgomery.

Readers know her as the creator of the irrepressible, outgoing, redheaded and very talkative Anne Shirley from The Anne Of Green Gables series.

Television fans know her as the writer of the Chronicles of Avonlea, the collection of short stories that was the basis for the 1990’s television series Avonlea.

For this redhead and redheads the world over, Anne Shirley is an icon. In a world where female redheaded characters are few and far between, Anne Shirley is a role model.

Am I the only redhead who gets the tiny bit satisfaction from Anne’s response in the clip above?

Happy Birthday, L.M. Montgomery!
