Afternoon of Chocolate to feature bestselling author

The Conrad Public Library is set to host their second annual Afternoon of Chocolate on Feb. 10, from 1-4 p.m.

Scheduled to be on hand is New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Jamie Ford.

His book is also listed as a “top reader” on the Barnes and Knobel Book Club selection, as well as the Target Book Club, to name a couple.

Hotel has been translated into 17 languages and Ford says, “I’m still holding out for Klingon, that’s when you know you’ve got it made.”

His next novel is Whispers of a Thunder God. “It should be out and on the bookshelves sometime in early 2011,” Ford said.

Presently he is working a Young Adult series. He is the father of two boys and two girls of which he comments, “Its chaos, but a good kind of chaos.”

Besides good conversation with Ford, there will be door prizes and raffles through-out the afternoon, not to mention some good chocolate.
