fantastic podcast on Before Green Gables

If you’re curious about the new Anne of Green Gables book–Before Green Gables–then check out this podcast! The podcast includes interviews with author Budge Wilson (ohh! I wish I could have been there. But listening to the podcast is a close second), editor Helen Reeves from Penguin Books, who edited Before Green Gables , LM Montgomery’s granddaughter Kate Macdonald Butler, LM Montgomery expert Betsy Epperly, Adrienne Clarkson (the Governor-General of Canada, and a literacy advocate) and more.

The podcast is a wonderful celebration of Anne books; it’s such fun to listen to! It’s so well put together, like woven bits of each person’s story that makes a whole–from the editor who wanted the book written, to the granddaughter, to Budge Wilson, to Anne enthusiasts. I love how honest and forthright Budge Wilson is. The podcast flows beautifully, and has such interesting tidbits. I loved listening to it. If you like Anne, you’ll want to listen.

    I just finished “Beyond Green Gables” and it was superb – I didn’t want it to end – but luckily there are many books to follow that will be delicious to re read in the Anne series. I recommend it highly – Budge Wilson has done an outstanding job and deserves great praise and admiration for providing a worthy prequel.
