The Twilight Book Club reads "Hotel on the corner of Bitter and Sweet"

On Tuesday, April 6th at 6:30 PM, the Twilight Book Club will meet to discuss Jamie Ford's Hotel on the corner of Bitter and Sweet.

Set mainly in the Seattle during the 1940s during the worst of WWII, Ford's novel illumines the world of young Henry Lee, and his growing friendship with Keiko Okabe, a Japanese American student. With his focus on the Asian immigrant experience and a grim reminder of the Japanese "resettlement" camps, Ford has crafted a memorable novel about endurance and hope in a time and place that should not be forgotten.

Book group copies are available at the Circulation Desk. For more information, contact Darrell Eifert at deifert (at)

The Twilight Book Club meets on the first Tuesday of each month, from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Dorothy Little room.
