Campus Read - Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Everyone is invited to join a reading group for the Campus Read of Jamie Ford's Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet!.

"Jamie Ford has written a tender and satisfying novel that is tucked into a part of Seattle history we would rather not face. 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. But, more importantly, it will make you feel." Garth Stein, NY Times bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain.
