Now Reading: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
Next Meeting: May 14th

Henry is Chinese; Keiko is Japanese. They are the only Asians in their Seattle elementary school in 1942, when Pearl Harbor has made all Asians targets for suspicion and abuse. When Keiko’s family is sent away to an internment camp, Henry vows to wait for her. Forty years later, a recently widowed Henry comes upon an old hotel where the belongings of dozens of displaced Japanese families have turned up in the basement, and his feelings for Keiko are rekindled.
