Author Jamie Ford grew up in Seattle, where he used our city’s history as a backdrop for his best-selling novel, 2009′s “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.” Ford has once again set a work of fiction in Seattle, his just-released novel “Songs of Willow Frost,” the story of a young Chinese-American woman who must make a terrible decision in order to save her child. Set in the city during the 1920s and 1930s, “Songs” revisits some of the city’s toughest times and vividly recreates the daunting conditions of that era.
Join Ford and me at noon Tuesday for a live chat right here. If you can’t join us at noon, send questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
