2014 L. M. MONTGOMERY INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
The 2014 L. M. Montgomery International Conference was held June 26-29 at the University of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The topic was "L. M. Montgomery and War."
The L. M. Montgomery Literary Society was well-represented at the Conference -- several members attended and presented papers: Carolyn Strom Collins, Emily Woster, Mary Beth Cavert and Christy Woster.
The LMM Literary Society sponsored a Silent Auction as a fund-raiser for the "Friends of the L. M. Montgomery Institute" during the Conference. Featured were many early editions of LMM works along with items related to LMM's works, Prince Edward Island, and World War I. Total raised was over $2300.
Hand-made red poppies were given to Charter Donors of the Friends of the LMM Institute in honour of their donations as well as to honour the memory of soldiers of The Great War.
