April 19th and the tickets are going on Sale Monday 3/28...

Is anybody else going to try to go?

Just curious if I will run into any of the Midwestern boardmembers...

I went to buy tickets after work the day they went on sale but THEY WERE SOLD OUT!

Oh well, hopefully Neil's right and a venue change would open up more seats and tickets.

If you guys go, yell at me.

I'll be there. I have four tickets and believe I am using them all, but if someone cancels on me at the last minute, I'll come here.

Yep, using all four...

Anyhow, does anybody have any idea where I could find guidelines for the book signing? Just wondering if I can buy a book here and bring it there, or if I have to buy one at the signing (haven't been to a lot of signings, obviously).

Have you tried contacting the venue? Different places do different things, especially as this is a theatre, not a bookstore. (He came to my library once upon a time, and while we did have a table set up selling books, he signed anything and everything that night).

Yeah, I tried, but couldn't get in touch with anyone. It's something I only thought about recently. It was hard even getting tickets, as the number they posted on that web page the day they went on sale wasn't the right one. Ah, well. I have a book I'd like signed. If I have to buy another there, no big deal, I guess. I just hope they have all of his stuff available for purchase there if that's the case. I can see something like this, being in a museum and all, having a limited selection.

I'll be there; but I registered just for the purpose of background info on his visit today. He is actually getting a short-term residency here at the U of C, and one of the requirements is this lecture. My guess would be that they're not going to require anyone to buy anything, since this is an academic event.

How many [url=link deleted]Chicago Tours/url] does he do a year? I've seen him speak before and he's very good. I hear they sell out really fast. Are there any on ebay or anything? Thanks,
