Join us for a book discussion of the 2009 novel Hotel on the corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Set in Seattle’s Japantown, this novel examines a love affair set amid the chaos of blackouts, curfews, and FBI raids of post-Pearl Harbor America and the resulting internment of Japanese American citizens. It is requested that attendees read the book prior to the discussion.

This program is offered in support of the November “Confinement in the Land of Enchantment” exhibit at the Southside Branch Library.
