Author of Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Jamie Ford, speaks at Caddo Magnet HS on Th, Sept 25, 6:30 pm
Jamie Ford, author of two best selling books, will speak as Mary Jane Malone Lecture Series guest at Caddo Magnet HS, says Leslye Gilchrist. Ford is best known for his debut novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.
Seattle author Garth Stein commented, “A tender and satisfying novel set in a time and a place lost forever, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet gives us a glimpse of the damage that is caused by war--not the sweeping damage of the battlefield, but the cold, cruel damage to the hearts and humanity of individual people. Especially relevant in today's world, this is a beautifully written book that will make you think. And, more importantly, it will make you feel.”
Ford's talk at 6:30 in the Caddo Magnet HS Performing Arts Center on Thurs, Sept 25, is free; the public is cordially invited. Ford will sign books afterwards.
