Start: 7:00 pm
On Monday, May 9th at 7 PM, Carmichael's is delighted to host a reading and book signing with critically acclaimed independent filmmaker and author, John Sayles, for his latest novel, A Moment in the Sun. Spanning five years and half a dozen countries, A Moment in the Sun takes the whole era in its sights -- from the white-racist coup in Wilmington, North Carolina, to the first stirrings of the motion-picture industry, to the bloody dawn of U.S. interventionism in Cuba and the Philippines. Shot throughwith a lyrical intensity and stunning detail that recalls Doctorow and Deadwood both, this is a story as big its subject: history rediscovered through the lives of the people who made it happen. Actor and musician Will Oldham will be joining us for the event to give the introduction. Oldham was a featured actor in Matewan, a 1987 John Sayles film set in a 1920 West Virginia mining town.
