Book Launch of "A Moment in the Sun" by John Sayles

Fully Booked had its book launch of A Moment in the Sun by John Sayles on June 25, 2011 (Saturday) at 3:00 p.m. at the Atrium G/L of Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street.

After a well-received visit in February 2011 to talk about the Philippine-American war and promote his latest flick Amigo, independent film director and author John Sayles returns to unveil yet another one of his works. A Moment in the Sun is a novel that encompasses key moments in history—including the Philippines during the Fil-Am war—and is described by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “...a strapping 935 pages, a sprawling U.S.A.-style novel that, something like the John Dos Passos classic, follows a group of characters in parallel tracks as they traverse the America of 1897, taking in the Yukon gold rush, the Spanish-American War in the Philippines, and the advent of movies. Like all Sayles films and novels, it's drenched in a detailed, loving awareness of time and place.”
Full Booked is located at G/L The Atrium Fully Booked, B6 Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Philippines.
