Kindred Spirits After All: new podcast, photo album, and blog about the Lucy Maud Montgomery collection

Few Canadian authors have achieved the universal appeal of Lucy Maud Montgomery, whose iconic series Anne of Green Gables continues to resonate with book lovers of all ages. We have created a podcast, Kindred Spirits After All, a photo album, and wrote a blog article to showcase the donation made by book collector Ronald I. Cohen, who donated his entire Lucy Maud Montgomery collection to Library and Archives Canada (LAC).

LAC Special Collections Librarian, Meaghan Scanlon, interviewed Mr. Cohen about his generous donation and gave him a tour of the vault where the Lucy Maud Montgomery collection resides. In the podcast, Mr. Cohen speaks about his relentless pursuit of a Lucy Maud Montgomery collection that would be unmatched the world over, and his gracious decision to donate all of it to LAC.
