Photos: 14th Annual John Gardner reading at the Pok-A-Dot
It's been said that the Pok-A-Dot was John Gardner's favorite eatery. In "The Sunlight Dialogues," Gardner mentions the 56-year-old diner in one passage.
For 14 years, the John Gardner Society has gathered at The Dot to remember the man and read from his work.
Saturday, nine people took turns reading from a variety of his works, including novels, poems, short stories and nonfiction.
