About the event

The Micah Workers invite you to join a book discussion of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. This novel is a story about family relationships, first loves, racial barriers and making human connections in the midst of human conflict. The main character Henry Lee, a Chinese American, comes upon a commotion at a landmark hotel in a historic Japanese neighborhood of Seattle and is engulfed by long-forgotten childhood memories. He remembers both the inhumanities of war and the hope found through human connection. 

Join us as we explore the relationships of the Japanese, Chinese and Black characters in this story and how they navigate racial tensions. We will meet on Thursday, February 29 from 7:00-8:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. The book is available from any bookstore of your choice.
