In this episode, host and producer Brenton Dickieson sits down digitally with Kate Scarth, Chair of L.M. Montgomery Studies at the University of Prince Edward Islands and Alyssa Gillespie, editorial assistant for The Journal of L.M. Montgomery Studies. In discussing our family holiday traditions and our favourite Montgomery Christmas scenes, we also visit with the technical director of the MaudCast, Kristy McKinney. With eggnog lattes in our hands and red currant wine in our hearts, the MaudCast team toasts this strange year that was with hopes for the years to come. The episode concludes with Brenton’s reading of “Christmas at Red Butte,” Montgomery’s prairie Christmas story, and one that reminds us of the importance of family and self-sacrifice--even in the midst of adversity, isolation, and distance from the ones we love. Merry Christmas!
