Bestselling Author Jamie Ford Discusses His New Novel, "Songs of Willow Frost"
Jamie Ford, the New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, makes his way to AADL on October 21st from 7 to 8:30 pm, to discuss his highly-anticipated sophomore novel, Songs of Willow Frost!
Songs of Willow Frost follows twelve-year-old William Eng, a Chinese-American boy, who, with his friend Charlotte, escapes from a Seattle orphanage determined to find the film star Willow Frost, who he is convinced is really the mother he hasn't seen since her listless body was carried from their apartment five years prior. Deftly shifting between the Great Depression and the 1920s, Songs Of Willow Frost takes readers on a sweeping emotional journey that will resonate with anyone who has ever longed for family and a place to call home. It's a powerful tale of two souls—a boy with dreams for his future and a woman escaping her haunted past—seeking love, hope, and forgiveness.
The event includes a book signing and books will be on sale. Do not miss this evening with the acclaimed writer Jamie Ford!
