The Bowl with Gold Seams

Saturday, June 10, 2017, 1:00 pm

Ellen Prentiss Campbell's debut novel is a moving, intimate story inspired by an unusual chapter in the long history of Pennsylvania’s Bedford Springs Hotel: its use in 1945 as a detainment center for the Japanese ambassador to Berlin, his staff, and their families. The author will discuss writing her book, the background story, and read excerpts.
