>A Moment in the Sun Book Tour Dates


Here it is, 40 days and 40 nights we are on the road, stopping at independent bookstores and a few libraries where John will read from many different chapters of his very big book. Please look for the city near you and contact the venue. In some cases you need a reservation and you’ll see LA ALOUD is already sold out. Please also pass along this list to friends so they can catch a reading nearby. John does a good show.
