Anne Lovers Around The World! Part 4: Lynn

My name is Lynn and I’m from Chicago. I first became familiar with a Anne when I was about 11, when my mother introduced me to books. At the time, my parents were going threw a divorce and the books were a way for me to escape the pain that was around me. When the series came to the tv screen in 1985, I fell in love all over again.

In 2017, was my first trip to PEI so that I could experience where LM Montgomery brought Anne to life. I visited again in 2019 with my husband, who is my Gilbert; supportive, logical, and humors me.

The picture I included was when I met Megan Follows at ComicCon in 2018. We drove 8 hours to Toronto to see her and also took the opportunity to visit the various movie locations. 

Keep climbing,

Lynn

Most of all, though, it was her striving to be kind and striving to understand others that I think captured my soul.
