John and I lived in East Boston in the '70's and many of our friends turned out to see him. Holly Hesslop hosted a drop-in at Christopher's where we had a chance to catch up before the reading.
Porter Square is a real independent bookstore with local support . The reading was standing room only.
This was a chance for longtime fans to meet John Sayles and have him sign not only A MOMENT IN THE SUN but also the "mother" books (the ones that spawned this big one) and their copies of the movies too. Even on laser disc! That's how far we go back.
