New Book by Irene Gammel

The following announcement is from the Quill and Quire website:

Key Porter Books publisher Jordan Fenn has acquired Irene Gammel’s non-fiction work Looking for Anne: The Life and Times of Anne of Green Gables. Gammel will show how the international classic came to be written, and what the feisty heroine’s character reveals about author L.M. Montgomery. Publication is scheduled for spring 2008, to coincide with the centenary of Anne’s publication. Hilary McMahon of Westwood Creative Artists arranged the deal.
