Green Apple Books returns to Tosca Cafe on Sunday, May 22nd from 6:30pm - 8:00pm, to offer you a rare opportunity to meet a living legend of both print and film: John Sayles.

Most mortals would feel complete after having directed nearly twenty feature films, acting in dozens of others, and writing seven books – John Sayles seems to be just getting started. Many immortals have never been shortlisted for the National Book Award, nor the Academy Award – John Sayles has been there, and then done that. Plenty of artists have enjoyed a taste of success and then rested on their laurels, but John Sayles is a driving force, a massive talent, and as his forthcoming novel A Moment in the Sun so epically shows us, the type of genius that can capture the whole of the world in whichever medium he chooses. Thankfully for readers of all stripes, Sayles has chosen the written word to tell the tale of A Moment in the Sun, his most recent modern classic.

Join Green Apple in welcoming John Sayles to San Francisco, and in celebrating the release of his awesome opus, A Moment in the Sun, published by McSweeney's. This FREE event is for those of legal drinking age only, please, and will feature reading, signing, questions, answers, and whatever else we all come up with. We do expect that space will fill up quickly, so come early! NOTE: We're SOLD OUT of the reserved seating with advanced purchase, but there will still be plenty of seating up for grabs. 

(Please note that Mr. Sayles will only be signing copies of A Moment in the Sun that were purchased at this event, so leave your Lone Star poster at home, please.)
