Not Too Stuffy Book Group discusses The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

October 19th, 11:00 a.m. -12:00 noon @ The Pleasant Street Center

German occupation during WWII leads creative villagers on the British island of Guernsey, caught out after curfew, to invent an on-the-spot book club. After the war, 1946, in an exchange of letters between London author Juliet Ashton and its club members, a heartwarming tale is told of the resilient spirit of the islanders during that dark time.
