Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
Well done to us....we finally got book club up and running. Not only did it go well, we excelled our expectations which is wonderful. 5 out of the 6 invitees made it. We dined on chicken, exotic salads and potato bake - none of us being brave enough to try the Potato Peel Pie, which from all accounts is pretty dire. No need for such authenticity in our little group. Thank goodness for that. Most of us had re-read the book specificially for book club discussion and discuss it we did. A fun night was had by all, with lots of laughs, some learning and much discussion. Other titles and dates have now been booked in, so it looks like our club finally has wings.
We even have a name now too: CHARLES Chapel Hill and Reservoir Literary Exploration Society known amongst friends as Charlie's Angels.
