Join us at the Main Library on Friday, October 13, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. to hear New York Times best-selling author Jamie Ford discuss his newest novel, Love and Other Consolation Prizes. For anyone who enjoyed Mr. Ford’s best-selling novel Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, this is an invaluable opportunity to hear him discuss his powerful new novel set against the backdrop of the 1909 Seattle World’s Fair. The novel sheds light on a lesser known moment in history when a young boy, who is half-Chinese, is raffled off as a prize. The story follows his life, love, and ultimate return to the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962.
The novel has been described as “beautifully crafted,” “big-hearted,” and “irresistibly magnificent.” Please mark your calendars and join us for a lovely “after hours” evening that includes a meet and greet as well as a book signing with the author.
