Google Doodle Celebrates Canadian Author Lucy Maud Montgomery’s 141st Birthday
Today is Anne of Green Gables author Lucy Maud Montgomery’s 141st birthday! To celebrate, Google doodler Olivia Huynh honored Montgomery with several doodles of red-haired Anne Shirley, including an adorable animation of Anne turning green as she eats a cake she baked with liniment instead of vanilla.
As a celebrated novelist, Montgomery was an Officer of the Order of the British Empire and the first Canadian woman to be named a fellow of the British Royal Society of Arts. Her books have sold more than 50 million copies to date and have been translated into about 20 languages.
Happy Birthday, Lucy Maud Montgomery!
