“I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers.”Monday, May 4th, 2009
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the Mary Ann Shaffer Memorial Fund, which provided a scholarship at Soapstone, the Writing Retreat for Women, for an unpublished writer who has shown a serious commitment to writing.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.
