Jamie Ford 3Meet Author Jamie Ford at the Saturday, April 25, Show

CATS is delighted to welcome Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, on Saturday, April 25, 2015, 8pm, at the Nevada Theatre.  Mr. Ford will speak to the audience after the show and will be signing his two books, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet and Songs of Willow Frost.  His books would be available for purchase at every show.

Mr. Ford is the great grandson of Nevada mining pioneer, Min Chung, who immigrated from Kaiping, China, to San Francisco in 1865, where he adopted the western name “Ford,” thus confusing countless generations. His debut novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, spent two years on the New York Times Bestseller list and went on to win the 2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature. His work has been translated into 34 languages. His new novel, Songs of Willow Frost, was released in 2013.
