The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Queen knows the Truth According to Us
Annie Barrows, co-author of the international best-selling The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, will be visiting Gold Coast Libraries next week.
Annie will be talking about her new book, The Truth According to Us on Tuesday 25 August.
Set in 1938, in West Virginia, and peopled with exquisitely drawn characters, this novel is funny, complex and enriching.
It can be hard to know what really happened in the past, but readers of this delightful book will learn, along with the main character ‘that history is the autobiography of the historian, that ignoring the past is the act of a fool, and that loyalty does not mean falling into line, but stepping out of it for the people you love.’
