2017 One Book, One Community Title
The 2017 One Book, One Community title is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Set during one of the most conflicted and volatile times in American history, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is an extraordinary story of friendship, family, and the power of forgiveness.
This year’s One Book, One Community reading project launches in mid-August and features several events including a community book discussion, film screenings, cultural exhibits and other engaging programs. Visit www.1book1community.org for related resources and a calendar of events.
The project will finish with two events with author Jaime Ford. On Tuesday, Oct. 24, Ford will speak at an invitation only, informal “Tea with the Author” event at the Moorhead Public Library in the afternoon. Later that evening, he will take the stage for an author presentation and book signing at the Knutson Campus Center Centrum (901 8th St. S.) on the campus of Concordia College. This event is free and open to the public.
Copies of the book are available for check out in several formats (print and ebook) at each of the participating libraries; book club kits are also available.
All One Book, One Community events are free and open to the public. This project is generously supported by the Friends of the Fargo Public Library, the Friends of the West Fargo Public Library, the Friends of the Moorhead Library and Moorhead Community Education.
