    Check out this user-created map of Guernsey from GoogleMaps

    You’ll find quotes from the book relating to various sites around the island, as well as photos of each area. This map is also useful for readers to orient themselves on Guernsey while reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Based on these photos, does Guernsey look like you imagined it did while reading the book?
    Many thanks to the google user “SubmarineGuernsey” for creating this map!,-2.5811&spn=0.121171,0.296288&t=h&z=12&msid=100914396836643406446.0004770085524a485bbdb

    Virtual book club, next question!

    While we’re thinking about it, let’s talk about literary tourism! Would you ever take a trip to Guernsey? Or anywhere else inspired by a book? What literary tourism have you participated in? Where do you dream of visiting?

    Thinking of visiting Guernsey?

    Check out this great article from the Boston Globe–written by a reader who fell in love with the island through the book and decided to take the trip!

    The video is a must-see as well, for a glimpse of the island as it is today, and to hear its story from a few of its longtime residents, some of whom lived through the occupation themselves.
