Bookcover for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Monday, February 25 through Friday, March 15, 2019. Read by Jim Fleming and Susan Sweeney

January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find 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. . . . Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises and of finding connection in the most surprising ways.
