Our former head librarian, Janet, loves Lucy Maud Montgomery’s ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. I feel pretty safe in saying I’m sure she’ll be excited to hear that Netflix has picked up the CBC version of the book, and will air it with a two-hour premiere, followed by eight more episodes! 2017 is going to be a good year for fans of this series!
While the traditional series followed Anne Shirley, a precocious and delightful young girl who turned into an equally delightful young woman in Prince Edward Island, the new Netflix series promises an update, to include more current themes, such as racism, identity, bullying, and more. Hopefully, it will resonate with a new generation of Anne fans.
