London via the Channel Islands to Paris


Wednesday, January 25, 2017 - 6:00pm




This London to Paris travelogue/ slide show promises to be an engaging evening with an emphasis on the Channel Islands. The travel included southern England, Normandy and then on to the City of Light.

Sandie McDonald will provide a highlight of the program by offering samples of “Potato Peel Pie” using the recipe from the best-seller: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society ( Shaffer & Barrows). The book is essentially about the German occupation during WWII and what the Islanders experienced and is well worth the read. In addition, the Islands’ trademark preserve, Black Butter will be available for tasting.

For more information, call the library at 541 348-2066.
