Elizabeth Rollins Epperly, professor emerita of English, first female president of the University of Prince Edward Island, founder of the L.M. Montgomery Institute at UPEI, grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, listening with her sister to their father reading L.M. Montgomery’s novels. Fascinated by the Island, she became the first student to register at the newly amalgamated UPEI. Now a Canadian, Epperly has published books on Montgomery’s writing, photography, and scrapbooks. Summer in the Land of Anne is her first children’s book. Visit her website at www.elizabethepperly.com.
