In 1941, on the island of Guernsey, four friends are stopped by soldiers for breaching curfew during German occupation. When asked for their reason, they say they were returning from their book club, hastily named "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society", to avoid arrest.
Five years later, in January 1946, author Juliet Ashton is promoting her latest book, written under her pen name Izzy Bickerstaff. She has just been contracted, through her publisher, Sidney Stark, to write stories for The Times Literary Supplement about the benefits of literature. Juliet receives a letter from Dawsey Adams, a man from Guernsey who has come into possession of her copy of Essays of Elia and who wants to know about where to find a bookshop in England to buy another book by the same author, Charles Lamb. He tells her that he is part of "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society", which meets each Friday night. Juliet sends another book by Lamb and his sister, Tales from Shakespeare in exchange for more information about the society and how it came into being. Read more on Wikipedia.
