Sharon Schneider’s choice for the May Book Club is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. “As London is emerging from the shadow of World War II, writer Juliet Ashton discovers her next subject in a book club on Guernsey--a club born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi after its members are discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island.” – from the summary on the library’s web site: ccclib.org. The club will meet on May 10th at Joan Coss’ home.
The June meeting of the Book Club will be a potluck get-together at Lura Cota’s home.
