DISCUSSION: The Power of Words: Changing our World One Author at a Time: An Evening with Jamie Ford

Ford is the author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet (2009) and Songs of Willow Frost (2013). His third book, Love and Other Consolation Prizes, will be published in September, 2017. www.jamieford.com/about-jamie). Ford’s books feature characters who encounter numerous difficulties due to their differences. Ford’s Power of Words talk and the discussion of his books provide an opportunity for greater awareness of the immigrant and bi-racial American experience, and what it is like on a personal level to grow up in a multi-cultural family. We expect the topics of Ford’s books to resonate as our community grapples with issues of diversity and the town-and-gown divide. A ticketed reception in the Monroe County Public Library atrium will follow Ford’s talk.
