A video/lecture/discussion covering a beautifully-animated anime retelling of the 1908 story of an 11-year-old orphan who is taken in by an “elderly” brother-sister Canadian farm family. As they reach 60, they want a boy orphan to help on the farm. They get a surprise when a rather imaginative (and feisty) girl shows up. We will cover Anne’s first year with Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert through the first 20 half-hour episodes, shown two per week. In between there will be background information, including of the animation itself and of the history and geography of Prince Edward Island and the life of L.M. Montgomery, who lived part of this story before becoming a huge success as an author.
