CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI -- The Confederation Centre Public Library is pleased to announce that Mr. Haruo Matsumaru, Reading Instructor at the ASAHI Culture School in Tokyo, will be giving a Japanese reading of passages from the L.M. Montgomery novel Anne of Green Gables.
An excerpt of Anne of Green Gables has made a trip that most of us only dream of.
