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.
