2018 Calendar of Events

 

The Leaskdale Manse is wheelchair accessible on the first floor only. The Historic Leaskdale Church, home to our luncheon teas and Gift Shop, is now wheelchair accessible on both floors thanks to the installation of our new elevator in the Summer of 2018.

L.M.M. Day – L.M. Montgomery at Home in Leaskdale

 

It was smiles all round on October 27 as Lucy Maud Montgomery Day brought Melanie Fishbane and Benjamin Lefebvre to our site as both presenters and authors. We were also honored by the attendance of Dr. Mary Henley Rubio, Professor Emerita of English at the University of Guelph. She is the author of Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings, and, with Elizabeth Hillman Waterston, she edited five volumes of The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery, two volumes of The Complete Journals of L.M. Montgomery, and a Norton critical edition of Anne of Green Gables

The Blythes are Quoted, by Benjamin Lefebvre and Maud, by Melanie Fishbane were the subjects of the LMM Day book signing
