Author Annie Barrows at the Pleasant Hill Library

Mar 27, 2016 12:50PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

Come spend a very special Evening With Friends at the Pleasant Hill Library for a conversation with author Annie Barrows, Monday, April 4 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. 

Annie Barrows, author of the best selling “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society,” will talk about her latest novel, “The Truth According To Us.” 

It’s the summer of 1938, during the Depression, when the daughter of a U.S. Senator is sent from her life of privilege in Washington, D.C., to a small town in West Virginia. Her assignment – write about the town’s history for the Federal Writers Project. What she thinks will be a straightforward (and boring) task turns out to be anything but. She begins to understand the subjective nature of history, and how the town’s story is wrapped up in the mystery of a single family.

This April 4 Evening With Friends is one in a series of free, public meet the author programs hosted by Friends of the Pleasant Hill Library, 1750 Oak Park Blvd, Pleasant Hill.  For more information see the website:
