I am working on the final and complete itinerary for the A MOMENT IN THE SUN TOUR and I promise to post it soon.

John’s one and only reading in New York City is at the Gotham Center in the old B. Altman Department store, now a very nice auditorium. Put the date on your calendar. See you there Maggie

John Sayles’ A Moment in the Sun Book Launch

This is John Sayles only stop in NYC on a multi-city book tour

Wednesday, May 4th, 6:30 p.m.

CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue @ 34th Street – Recital Hall

John Sayles’s monumental new novel, A Moment in the Sun, is set at the turn of the 20th century, as America is struggling to define itself in a rapidly changing world. It is a time that sees the contentious dawn of U.S. imperialism in Cuba and the Philippines, the last desperate stand of Reconstruction in the American South, and the development of mass media, especially motion pictures, as the lens through which the public will increasingly interpret world events. Traveling from the Yukon gold fields, to New York’s bustling Newspaper Row, to Wilmington’s deadly racial coup of 1898, to the bitter triumph at San Juan Hill in Cuba, and to war zones in the Philippines, A Moment in the Sun is a book as big as its subject: history rediscovered through the lives of the people who made it happen.
