The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Wow, its been awhile since I’ve read this(you didn’t think I’ve been reading a book a day did you??)   🙂

by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

The story takes place in the mid 1940’s

A series of letters

from an author

to various individuals,

her publisher

some of the inhabitants on Guernsey Island

about a society called” …The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society that came into being because of a roast pig they had to keep secret form the German soldiers….”(page 9)during German Occupation.

A book that had belonged to Juliet(an author) turned up on Guernsey Island. and the person who bought it contacts her….

Thus the real story begins …


The book is complete with discussion questions perfect for self reflection on the story or to expand up on in a book club.
