Neil Gaiman Ticket Update II

Additional tickets will be distributed on Monday, December 7th starting at 10 a.m.  We are not yet certain of the number, but it will be at least 100.  Some tickets will be given out in the shop and the remainder will be reserved for phone requests.  Regardless, the limit will continue to be one ticket per person.

For those individuals desiring to place phone reservations, please remember that you must talk to an actual person.  Leaving a voice mail is not sufficient.

When those tickets run out, we do have an alternative available.  We'll then begin passing out tickets, in the same manner, for an overflow room.  A ticket will be need for this as well.

Due to the high demand, we have reserved Maclean Auditorium at Presser Hall where people will be able to view Mr. Gaiman's presentation on a live feed.  It's the next best thing to being there.

For everyone attending, including those in Maclean Auditorium, Neil will sign and personalize one book (two if at least one is purchase from Little Shop of Stories).

Little Shop currently has a selection of Neil Gaiman hardcover books on sale.  Titles include picture and chapter books, as well as adult fiction.

I am so delighted to hear that there will be overflow seating! My work schedule makes it impossible to either call or visit the store on Monday morning.

Just remember, you will need a ticket for the overflow room as well.

Are the tickets the same, or will the overflow tickets be restricted to the overflow room?

Tracy said...

How large is the overflow room? (Big enough that if I call between my 9:45 meeting and my 11:00 meeting there might, just might, still be tickets?)

The overflow room will be ticketed separately. The room seats better than 200, and a minimum of 100 of these will be reserved for people who call in their request.

Busy busy busy signal! To be expected, of course. :-)

Would you please do us deskbound souls a favor and post on the blog when you've run out of tickets, so we can stop hounding your phone lines?

(The power of posting to the blog--as I hit "Publish your comment," I got through! For those still trying to call: there are only overflow tickets left right now.)
