Castle Minisode 3: The Book Drunkard Festival’s Nod to Maud

Welcome to our third and final Castle Minisode! This wraps up our first season, so tune in to get your final fix of castles before we move on to season 2! (Spoiler: this minisode has literally nothing to do with castles.)

This past autumn we had the pleasure of traveling to The Book Drunkard Literary Festival in Uxbridge, Ontario, where we visited the Leaskdale Manse, the longtime home of L.M. Montgomery. We attended the Nod to Maud event, which included a talk from Montgomery’s granddaugher Kate MacDonald Butler on the theme of…FEMINISM!!

Was Maud a feminist? What was her feminist legacy? What would she have thought of the #MeToo movement? Needless to say, this was an event that was right up our alley.

Join us for our final Castle minisode, where we will tell you about this fantastic event, as well as do a little Q&A with each other in our own personal Nod to Maud and her books.
