Don't give up hope, go see a reading at the Philadelphia Free Library. 200-250 smart Americans who love books. Here are two of them including Concha Alborg, a John Sayles fan.
Joseph Fox Bookshop must be pleased: John signed 120 copies of the book (only $29.00 which isn't bad for a cat-squasher). 45 were copies that were ordered through James Fox by people who did not attend the event and the rest were like the nice family here.
