THE GUERNSEY LITERARY & POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY
Friday 7th September 2018 - Doors open at 7:30pm, film
starts at 8:00pm
in 1946, a London based
writer forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the
aftermath of World War II. They write about events that occured during
the German occupation of the island. She then decides to write a book about their
experiences during the war.
This correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton and members of The Guernsey
Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, with them sharing their experiences of
Nazi Occupied Guernsey. When an idea for a book catches Juliet she goes to
visit the island, making lifelong friends and taking life changing steps
along the way.
In the book the story is told by way of letters and as the reader, you become enchanted
by the writers of them and the love Juliet comes to feel for each of the
Islanders; Dawsey, Amelia, Isola, Eben, Kit and Elizabeth. A beautiful story
of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost.
And the unusual name? In 1941, a group of four Guernsey residents are
walking at nighttime in occupied Guernsey. They are stopped by a
German patrol for breaching curfew. When asked for their reason, one
of the women notices a book in the pocket of one of the Germans and says
that they were at a book group. Collectively, they make up the book
group's name, the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and so
mamage to avoid arrest.
Run time: 124 min.
