Author Talk and Book Signing: "Love and Other Consolation Prizes" by Jamie Ford
Bestselling author Jamie Ford comes to the library just in time for the debut of his third novel, "Love and Other Consolation Prizes." Since publication of his popular World War II novel, "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet," Ford's work has moved back in time, to the Great Depression in "Songs of Willow Frost" and now to the 1909 Seattle World's Fair, where a 12-year-old orphan boy discovers that he is to be raffled off "to a good home." By the time of Seattle's second World's Fair 50 years later, the one-time orphan has his own family and with its own secrets to hide. Barnes and Noble will have books for purchase at this book signing event.
