Imagining Anne: The Island Scrapbooks of L.M. Montgomery is a facsimile of selected pages from two of L.M. Montgomery's scrapbooks from 1893 to 1910, prepared and annotated by Elizabeth Rollins Epperly.

It was published in 2008 to celebrate 100th anniversary of Anne of Green Gables. It features a foreword by Adrienne Clarkson and an afterword by Francis W.P. Bolger.


Celebrated author Lucy Maud Montgomery was an avid keeper of journals and scrapbooks, collecting mementoes that together form a portrait of a fascinating Canadian life more than one hundred years ago. Her Island scrapbooks, from the years 1893 to 1910, provide a revealing look into her world and her inspiration during the period when she created the beloved character of Anne Shirley, while living in Atlantic Canada as a college student, teacher, and writer.

In celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the publication of Anne of Green Gables , Montgomery scholar Elizabeth Rollins Epperly has selected and annotated more than one hundred pages of these scrapbooks to produce a beautiful gift book for Montgomery readers, history buffs, and scrapbook enthusiasts.
