Montgomery Theatre president, Mary Crane, left, congratulates contest winners Jo (Hang Ying), second left, and Cindy (Huang Ixhiui) after hearing essays on how the Prince Edward Island described in the new translation of Anne of Green Gables inspired them, during a reception at the Montgomery Theatre in North Rustico. Joe (Chang, Zhou Sheng), left, a youth ambassador from Hainan, P.E.I.’s sister province in China, also spoke. The three young people, as well as representatives from Anne in China Inc., left this past Sunday for China to promote the contest winners and discuss the second printing of Anne in Mandarin.

    My wife actually read all the books before we were married. My daughter has read all the books. We've seen all the movies and I use clips from the movies in my teaching.Anne and what she represents are the real endearing values of all islanders. She is a more important export than potatoes!
