Rhode Island reads The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Rhode Island Center for the Book at the Providence Public Library kicked off their 2010 common reading selection last month, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  Culminating in a sold-out breakfast with Annie Barrows on May 1, programming has included a videoconference with the author, Living Literature segments at various library branches, and a program on Guernsey, England and the United States during World War II.

The novel, which follows a writer’s journey to the British Island of Guernsey and into a secret society borne during the Second World War’s German occupation, has also been selected by the community of Saratoga Springs, New York and is a Library Journal Best Book of 2008.
