    Who would you cast?

    We all love to cast the movie in our mind as we read, so now we’re asking you: if you were casting the film version of GLAPPPS, who would you love to see on the big screen?

    Guernsey is #1!

    We couldn’t be happier to report that The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has occupied the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list (trade paperback fiction) for three weeks and counting!

    This is in no small part due to the enthusiasm and passion of readers like you, who have not only read and loved Guernsey, but shared it with your friends, colleagues, sisters, parents, teachers, students, strangers on the street…

    Our congratulations go out not only to Annie Barrows and the late Mary Ann Shaffer, but to all of you, who have made this wonderful book such a success. The members of the GLAPPPS would be proud.

    The Mary Ann Shaffer Memorial Fund

    To celebrate Guernsey author Mary Ann Shaffer’s life-long commitment to writing, her family created the Mary Ann Shaffer Memorial Fund, which provided a scholarship at Soapstone, the Writing Retreat for Women, for an unpublished writer who has shown a serious commitment to writing. Soapstone offers women writers a stretch of uninterrupted time for their work and the opportunity to live in semi-solitude close to the natural world. Soapstone also provides the validation and encouragement necessary to embark upon or sustain a long or difficult writing project.

    If you would like to send a donation to Soapstone in memory of Mary Ann Shaffer, please mail your check to:

    Soapstone, Inc.
    622 S.E. 29th Avenue
    Portland, OR 97214

    Designate “In memory of Mary Ann Shaffer” on your check.

    Donate online through Network for Good. In the “Designation” line, enter “In memory of Mary Ann Shaffer.”
