Details for the Neil Gaiman Event

On Monday, December 14, 2009

People may begin lining up at 7am.  Not before.  There is no need to line up early.  If you have a ticket, you have a seat.  However, it is first come, first seated.  The weather forecast looks quite nice; let us hope it holds.

Food can be purchased at Alston Coffee from 8am-7pm, Mollie's grill from 9am-midnight, and the dining hall from 7:30am-9am ($6.50), 11:30am-2 pm ($8.50), and 5pm-7pm ($9).

Doors will open at 4:30pm, which is a bit earlier than previously announced.

For those of you who have yet to pick up your tickets, a will call table will be set up outside of Presser Hall.  This should be set up by 3:30pm at the latest, and remain open until 6pm.

Mr. Gaiman will begin speaking promptly at 6pm.  Following his presentation, Neil will sign books.  Remember, he will sign and personalize one book.  If you purchase at least one Neil Gaiman book from Little Shop, he will sign and personalize two books.  We will call people up to get their books signed by rows.  After everyone seated in Gaines Chapel has had their books signed, we will call in people from Maclean Auditorium (the overflow room).

Little Shop of Stories will be selling books at Presser Hall prior to and after the presentation.  (If the weather cooperates, we will sell books outside starting by 3pm.)  The list will include adult titles, chapter books, and picture books.  There will be a limited number of presigned books available for purchase immediately following Mr. Gaiman's presentation.

Ohhhhhh!  Two more days!

Wow, I hope my plan to show up with the big kid in early afternoon doesn't mean the "show up at 7AM" crowd will take all the seats.

There are lots of people who, like Danny, are ridiculously excited. Neil does not tour often, and no one seems to remember the last time he did a reading anywhere near Atlanta. Agnes Scott College doesn't want anyone camping out overnight. Thus the 7am limitation. But we do all understand the level of anticipation and the camaraderie of fans. We at Little Shop are really, really excited.
