The ANNEthology

Edited by Judith Graves and Robin Sutherland

A book launch for The ANNEthology will be held on June 23 from 7-8:30 pm in the Hilda Woolnough Gallery at The Guild in Charlottetown.

Join ten of Canada’s top young adult fiction writers—Judith Graves, Robin Sutherland, Deirdre Kessler, Hope Dalvay, Susan White, Susie Moloney, Shari Green, Paul Coccia, Natasha Deen and Matthew Dawkins—as they set Canada’s favourite red-haired orphan, Anne Shirley, on brand new adventures. 

With its futuristic settings, cybernetic beings, ghosts, mysterious books and boxes, and racial and sexual diversity in its cast of characters, The ANNEthology offers serious “scope for the imagination” for all readers.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of L.M. Montgomery’s birth and the 30th anniversary of Acorn Press, PEI’s longest-running traditional publishing house. The Press is celebrating these milestones by publishing a collection of stories inspired by the Island’s most beloved authors. 

PEI’s Judith Graves is a young adult fiction writer, screenwriter and illustrator. A firm believer that fiction can be action-packed, snarky, and yet hit the right emotional notes, she writes stories with attitude. 

Robin Sutherland holds a Ph.D. in literature and a certificate in Technical Writing, and has worked as a university instructor, a writing centre coordinator, and a freelance writer and editor. Also a creative writer, she has published short fiction, and has recently completed a collection of stories.
