New 'Heritage Minute' marks International Women's Day

Historica Canada is honouring PEI author Lucy Maud Montgomery with a new Heritage Minute to mark International Women's Day.

The Heritage Minute explores Montgomery's struggle with depression as she faces early rejection from publishers who sent back her manuscript for ``Anne of Green Gables.''

Crews were on the Island for six days in September, along with actresses Meghan Greeley and Nadia Tonen, capturing the exterior shots in Cape Tryon and Thunder Cove.

Montgomery is the 89th Heritage Minute and the 15th Heritage Minute since the relaunch.
