"Bettyville," this year's One Read selection, is in part a portrait of an aging parent. As a complement to the book, the Columbia Public Library will display photographs from Anastasia Pottinger's Centenarian Series throughout September. This work explores the beauty of the aging body through portraits featuring subjects age 100 and older. Learn more about Pottinger and her work at www.roguestudios.photo.
Bring a brown bag lunch and join us to discuss this year's One Read runner-up "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" by Jamie Ford. When artifacts from Japanese families sent to internment camps during World War II are uncovered during renovations at a Seattle hotel, Henry Lee embarks on a quest that leads to memories of growing up Chinese in a city rife with anti-Japanese sentiment. Yolanda Ciolli, a member of the One Read reading panel, will lead the discussion.
