L.M. Montgomery Biography by Jane Urquhart

Penguin Canada is launching a new series called Extraordinary Canadians, “a rediscovery of the great figures of Canada’s past by its most brilliant contemporary writers,” with John Ralston Saul as General Editor. Eighteen volumes are planned for publication between 2008 and 2010, along a companion TV documentary series and a website that is not yet online. The first three books in the series—Emily Carr by Lewis DeSoto, Lord Beaverbrook by David Adams Richards, and Nellie McClung by Charlotte Gray—will be published in March 2008.

In September 2009, they will publish L.M. Montgomery by Jane Urquhart. We will post further updates about this book once it becomes available.
