Harrison High School in partnership with the Harrison Public Library welcomed New York Times bestselling author Jamie Ford to Harrison on Wednesday, February 6th in the Student Union. After his talk with the community, he signed many of his novels.
Mr. Ford is best known for his novel Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, which was awarded the Asian Pacific American Award for Literature and was on the New York Times bestseller list for over two years. Mr. Ford’s second novel, Songs of Willow Frost, was also a New York Times bestseller and a favorite among community reading programs.
His latest work, Love and Other Consolation Prizes, was published by Ballentine in September of 2017 and released in paperback in May 2018. Inspired by true events, he returns to the themes of identify and belonging familiar to his readers.
