For the Love of Maud – High Tea

September 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Montgomery enthusiasts are invited to enjoy a fancy Afternoon Tea while we retell the amusing stories connected to Lucy Maud Montgomery’s visit to the Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead in Orwell, Eastern PEI. The Governor General at the time, Earl Grey, wished to meet the creator of the delightful “Anne of Green Gables”.

Dr. Andrew Macphail and Lucy Maud Montgomery were both Island authors. Montgomery was a dedicated journal keeper. The extracts from one of her journals will tell entertaining stories and her impressions of the people and place during her visit. Through her entries we get a glimpse of the woman writer and her sense of humour. Over tea discussions about her writing, and her struggle to be taken seriously as a woman.

Macphail, a well-known writer and professor at McGill University, Montreal, was born and at the Homestead.

We invite you to enjoy a sumptuous Afternoon Tea while learning and talking about all things Maud.

Admission Fee: $35 per person
