How to Host an Anne of Green Gables Party

Brenna Clarke Gray

Staff Writer

Part muppet and part college faculty member, Brenna Clarke Gray holds a PhD in Canadian Literature while simultaneously holding two cats named Chaucer and Swift. It's a juggling act. Raised in small-town Ontario, Brenna has since been transported by school to the Atlantic provinces and by work to the Vancouver area, where she now lives with her stylish cyclist/webgeek husband and the aforementioned cats. When not posing by day as a forserious academic, she can be found painting her nails and watching Degrassi (through the critical lens of awesomeness). She posts about graphic narratives at Graphixia, and occasionally she remembers to update her own blog, Not That Kind of Doctor. Blog: Not That Kind of Doctor Twitter: @brennacgray

Ready for an Anne of Green Gables party?

Food and Drink!

Here’s a recipe for raspberry cordial (and it’s actually raspberry cordial — not currant wine — but if you want to get naughty you can make a Dirty Anne Shirley cocktail).


You can serve your yummy drinks with Marilla’s Plum Pudding, Anne’s Plum Puffs, and Anne’s Liniment Cake (which you make with vanilla, not with liniment).

And then all you have to do is remember Anne’s advice about parties…

“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”

… and guests.

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”

Find all Anne, all the time here.
