Recently we had a book collectors club meeting at the shop.

Just a small but enthusiastic group that collect and love the works of Elinor Brent-Dyer. They are called the Chalet Club after the main series this prolific author wrote. Wonderful girls school stories set in the Alps. She was a teacher and headmistress and the stories have an authenticity that show a deep understanding of schoolgirls. The nearly 100 books were written and published between 1922 and 1969 and recently talented local authors have added to the list with retrospective titles filling in gaps to the series.

These books evoke another time and another way of life but are still a “jolly good yarn” for old and young alike.
