Salt Lake City, Utah – John Sayles is known as writer and director of films like Lone Star and Eight Men Out, but he's just published a new novel - an epic of America at the turn of the 20th century. And we're not using the word "epic" loosely. At just under 1,000 pages, the book takes on the many fronts of Manifest Destiny, from the Alaska gold rush to the Philippine-American War. Sayles is coming to Utah, and Monday, he joins Doug to explain how the events of a century ago still reverberate in America today.

  • On Friday, May 27th, John Sayles will be at Sam Weller's Zion Bookstore for a reading and book signing. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. For more information, click here
