Bean There, Read That: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

potato peel blogPick up a copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Garth Stein for the Tuesday January 28, 2013 7-8:30PM Bean There, Read That book discussion at The Classic Bean (21st and Fairlawn) for folks in their 20s and 30s!

London, January 1946, emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. She finds it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb. As Juliet andher new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island.

If you are interested in reading this, you can pick up a copy at the previous month’s meeting or at the Reference Desk, first-come, first serve.

Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay will be discussed on Tuesday February 25, 2014 7-8:30PM at The Classic Bean. As always, plan to bring cash for drinks and food as we gather for this discussion.
