Kindred Spirits of Green Gables (Week Five)

Instructor(s): Lindsay Herko
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Gather round, fans of Anne Shirley! Together let’s enjoy summer while evoking a golden age; we’ll have raspberry cordial on a walk and writing session, surely spotting all of our city’s best ridgepoles along the way. We will hone creative nonfiction, poetry or memoirs in tribute to the themes we love best in L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables – the family story, the friend adventure, life lessons, and the childhood sweetheart. Montgomery wrote about her homeland with deep love for its nature; in this vein our class would be great to similarly recall a special vacationland in a travelogue. Our writing will be enhanced with treasures from our own golden age, including use of old photos, cards, diaries and other objects to inspire our work. This will be a relaxing, joyful class, and nobody is allowed to call anyone else “CARROTS!”
