    Virtual book club, next question!

    Monday, November 9th, 2009

    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?

    Monday, November 9th, 2009

    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.

    While our contest winners were on the beautiful island of Guernsey, a local British television station did a great story about Guernsey, the book and the book club winners! Check it out here:

    Annie Barrows on literary meandering

    Friday, July 17th, 2009

    Guernsey author Annie Barrows has written a guest blog for about “literary meandering”, the path that leads us from one book to another.

    Check it out here, and let us know what you think! What was the sequence of books that brought you to Guernsey?

    Virtual book club! First question!

    Friday, July 10th, 2009

    A reader posted a comment to one of our posts that got us thinking–why not pose the question to everyone? Think of this as an online book club discussion. From time to time, we’ll post questions, you weigh in with your thoughts!

    This one comes to us from Debbie Hernick, who said:

    I absolutely LOVED this book! My book group is discussing it next week and everyone is very excited. I have one question- why are there no letters from Sophie? Juliet references Sophie’s letters but the authors never show them to the reader. Any thoughts?

    What do you think? Do you see a reason the authors would have made this choice?

    Send a letter!

    Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

    Many readers have been inspired to send their own letters after reading Guernsey. Written correspondence is, after all, the backbone of the novel.

    It is in this spirit that we bring you the Send a Letter feature on Why not use it to send a reminder to your book club? A book recommendation to your best friend? A note to your sister?

    The possibilities are endless! And it’s definitely what Juliet would do.

    Enter for a chance to win a trip to Guernsey with your book club!
