Win a year of books with The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Based on the bestselling novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a celebration of the power of books to lift us out of even the toughest of experiences. To celebrate its release we have teamed up with StudioCanal UK to bring you an exclusive competition to win a fantastic one-year subscription to Foyles' A Year of Books, plus a bundle of DVDs and a copy of the book that inspired the film.


In this charming new film from acclaimed director Mike Newell (Four Weddings and A Funeral) and the producers of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Lily James plays free-spirited writer Juliet Ashton, who forms a life-changing bond with the eccentric Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the occupation of Guernsey in WWII. Featuring an all-star cast - including Michiel Huisman, Tom Courtenay, Penelope Wilton, Matthew Goode, Katherine Parkinson and Jessica Brown Findlay – The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a compelling romantic drama with an intriguing mystery at its heart.




  • A one-year subscription to Foyles' A Year of Books (Paperback Fiction package)

  • A copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer (film edition tie-in paperback)
  • A DVD bundle including The Sense of An Ending, Swallows and Amazons, and The Imitation Game
