November book club: ‘The Guernsey Literary…’

The next Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield book club discussion will take place Sunday, Nov. 22 at 11:00 a.m. in the church parlor. The featured book will be “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

The society was born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island. In January 1946, author Juliet Ashton received a letter from one of the members who found her name and address in a book that he read. A remarkable correspondence begins between Juliet and the society’s members and, captivated by their stories, Juliet sets sail for Guersney, and what she finds will change her forever.

This book has been on the New York Times bestseller list for trade paperbacks for 22 weeks. As always, all are invited to participate in the discussion. For more information, contact Carolyn at
