During production of Road to Avonlea, several issues of a newsletter appropriately called The Avonlea Chronicle were produced exclusively for members of the Avonlea Fan Club. Relatively few issues were printed and even fewer still exist. In fact, there is only one copy of each at Sullivan Entertainment. Over the next few blogs, the articles published during Season 5 will be posted in their entirety.
It is accepted that the details of an author’s life will sometimes affect their work, whether they realize it or not. Often, authors will insert the smallest personal details into their text and it is only through their journals or letters that we can discover the reasons why.
Road to Avonlea is set in a small town on Prince Edward Island, on the East Coast of Canada. The reach of the show, however, spans the entire globe! The series has been broadcast around the world in dozens of languages. In French, it is known as “Les contes d’Avonlea”; in Spanish, it is “Camino a Avonlea”; it is “Tie Avonleaan” in Finland, and “Váratlan utazás” in Hungary.
