What is this?

A readalong for a classic book about a redheaded orphan whose untraditional mind opens hearts and takes all of us on a magnificent journey!

Finally, the readalong I’ve been thinking about for 3 years! What tipped me over? I’ve been inspired by my talks with Lisa of Paper Daisy Creations  as she designed her Socks of Green Gables Collection (coming soon). Brainstorming pivotal Anne moments and phrases with Lisa really got me excited to dive back into this charming world.

From 8 years old until my mid-20s I read the entire Anne series yearly, and I’ve read it every few years since then. It’s been too long this time, and I have this itch that needs scratching. From the characters to the vocabulary to the moments, this book has so much I love.

How will this work?

As easily and eagerly as possible! Grab an audiobook version if it helps. 

The book will be broken into three sections to make the experience unrushed.

The ways to participate include Instagram, Ravelry, and Zoom.

Sign up for the Imagined Landscapes Newsletter for details and reminders.

When?

Ch 1-14:  March 29 – April 11

Spoilers: 

WHAT? Spoilers? Yep. Some people haven’t yet met Anne or seen the Lake of Shining Waters. Please keep your discussion of the plot within the dates for the sections. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.There is no Anne Police and we understand that things happen. But it’s our hope that people reading Anne for the first time have a great experience and you can be part of making that happen!
