Author Visit with Jamie Ford

Wheelock Branch


When Jamie Ford, bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, found an old article in the Seattle Times about a baby who was given away as a prize at the Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition of 1909, he was instantly hooked. Did anyone claim this baby? Do we know what happened to him? A self-proclaimed fan of the unknown with a "never-ending appetite for lost history," Ford knew this was the book he had to write.

Set against a rich backdrop of post-Victorian vice, Love and Other Consolation Prizes, is an unforgettable story about the power of friendship, love, and devotion in a world where everything is for sale.

Books will be available for sale and signing courtesy of King's Books, Tacoma's independent bookstore.
