Book Lover's Tea

Thursday, June 30, 2011
2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Hibbing Public Library Dylan Room

The Friends of the Library wish to invite everyone to this book lovers event.  Tea and cookies will be served at 2:00 p.m. and there will be a book review from 2:30 until 3:30 p.m.

The participants will be discussing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Borrows.  In 1946, writer Juliet Ashton receives a letter from a stranger, a founding member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. And so begins a remarkable tale of the island of Guernsey during the German occupation, and of a society as extraordinary as its name.

Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of  Eat, Pray, Love said, "I can't remember the last time I discovered a novel as smart and delightful as this one, a world so vivid that I kept forgetting this was a work of fiction populated with characters so utterly wonderful that I kept forgetting they weren't my actual friends and neighbors. Treat yourself to this book please — I can't recommend it highly enough."

Pick up a copy of the book at the library, Wildwood Books, or Howard Street Booksellers and join the Friends for tea and conversation.
