Saratoga to join The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

guernsey paperback

In Saratoga Springs, NY the votes are in! They have selected The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for their 2009-2010 community-wide read!

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….
As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends—and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.

The Saratoga Reads website offers this glimpse into their recent selection process as they narrowed down the nominated books, one by one.

    We couple it with what’s usually recent (although not always) and peruse publications and book sites to validate/confirm our choice.
