November Book Club

Have you ever read a book at just the right time, when you needed it most in your life? Did it seem almost like that book serendipitously found you for a reason? Written words are powerful – they can change us, they can carry us through hard and good times, and they can bring people together. This month we’ll be reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Set during WWII on the small island of Guernsey located between southern England and France, this is a story of love, loss, and living amongst the enemy. A London writer finds a new subject to become passionate about as the Islanders try to move on after the Nazi occupation of their tranquil island. Told in reflective, heart-breaking, witty, and hilarious letters and telegrams, this book endears you to its amazing characters. If you haven’t read this yet, you’re in for a treat. If you have, read it with us again! It recently became a movie, but we promise the book is better. 😉 Stay tuned for artwork later this month, and follow along with @larsbookclub. We want to hear your thoughts! Enjoy!
