June 2010 Discussion

Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

This book is written in a letter format and gives the reader a revealing look at Guernsey Island during World War II. Juliet, a London writer, is intrigued by the Literary Society and a series of letters are exchanged by members of the group and Juliet. With humor, snide remarks, and a mystery or two, the reader is pulled into the correspondence and can't put the book down.

Review by Elizabeth, tech services

Join us to discuss the book on June 28th at 6:30 p.m. in the First Amendment Room, Scott County Library, Eldridge.
