8/30 Todd Walton: INSIDE MOVES

Join us at Gallery Bookshop on Friday August 30th at 6:30pm, for an author event featuring Todd Walton's INSIDE MOVES.

Jerry Maxwell and his good friend Roary are both handicapped. They divide their time between Max's bar in San Francisco and the bleachers of the Oakland Sports Complex to cheer on the Golden State Warriors. After a failed suicide attempt leaves a man named Roary partially crippled, he finds himself living in a run-down house in Oakland, California. He spends a lot of time at a neighborhood bar, which is full of other disabled people, and becomes best friends with Jerry, the barman with a bad leg. Jerry's luck turns round when a professional basketball player loans him the money for an operation to fix his leg. Once he is fully healed, Jerry goes on to become a basketball star, fulfilling his lifelong dream. "Inside Moves" was made into a critically-acclaimed film in 1980 by Richard Donner.

Selected and introduced by celebrated author Sherman Alexie.

The event will include a reading from the book, a Q & A and light refreshments.
