Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
Community Asian Theater of the Sierra brings to life novelist Jamie Ford's Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, which spent two years on the New York Times Best Sellers list after it was published in 2009. The story interweaves the narrative of a Chinese-American man in Seattle who comes across relics that belonged to a Japanese family sent to an internment camp during World War II with his own upbringing and the bond he developed with a Japanese girl named Keiko. Opening night takes place on Saturday, April 18, at 8 p.m. followed by a gala reception. On Saturday, April 25, the author will be present to speak after the show and sign copies of his books. Ticket prices range from $10 to $15 for dress rehearsal and preview tickets on Thursday, April 16, and Friday, April 17; normal tickets cost up to $25 for shows Thursdays through Sundays, running through Saturday, May 9, at the Nevada Theatre (401 Broad Street in Nevada City).
