Montgomery Christmas in Norval!

Please join us in Norval, Ontario, this Saturday, 29 November 2014, for the annual Montgomery Christmas. It’s a fun day of church bazaars, friendly people, and a chance to see the community where Montgomery and her family lived between 1926 and 1935 as well as the church where Montgomery’s husband was a minister throughout that time. I’m really looking forward to the performance of A Kindred Spirit Christmas, created and performed by the newly formed The Spirit of Maud Theatre Company.

I’ll be signing copies of the first two volumes of The L.M. Montgomery Reader at Crawford’s Village Bakery, where I’ll also be stocking up on jams and jellies and preserves, although this year it will be with a heavy heart because the Crawford family has recently announced that the bakery will be closing its doors the next day. Elaine Crawford and Kelly Crawford are the authors of Aunt Maud’s Recipe Book (1996), which deserves to be in everyone’s Montgomery collection.

Please see Deb Quaile’s blog L.M. Montgomery: The Norval Years for more details, and please join us if you can!

    Benjamin thank you for sharing updates regarding Norval’s annual community event, “Montgomery Christmas!” It will be a great honour to have you in our midst to sign copies of the first two volumes of The LM Montgomery Reader and chat with the many visitors who love LMM.

    Bob and Elaine (Laird/Webb) Crawford have supported Montgomery Christmas since “1993” at the village bakery. The Crawford Village Bakery will close but their support of Norval and love of “Maud” will continue to be shared through out the world! Upcoming news release will happen soon!

    The Spirit of Maud Theatre Company created by Marion Abbott brings the words of “Maud” to life on stage at the parish hall in Norval! “A Kindred Spirit Christmas” performed on the
    stage once used by L.M. Montgomery when she lived in Norval, 1926-1935.
