If you want to see Neil Gaiman in Santa Rosa on July 6, you’d better act fast. Tickets for his appearance at Santa Rosa High School went on sale yesterday, and even without much notice or advertising, they’re already selling quickly.
In just one day, reports Vicki D’Armon from Copperfield’s Books—sponsor of the event—roughly a quarter of the tickets are already gone. “I think I’ll probably have them through next week,” says D’Armon.
Gaiman is no stranger to local readers. I mean really—American Gods, Anansi Boys, Coraline? The Sandman? (To the uninitiated: Gaiman wrote a children’s book. He called it The Graveyard Book. That about sums it up.)
He’s also committed to his fans at a level that’s pretty unusual for authors of his stature. After the reading and Q&A, D’Armon reports, “he says he’ll stay until 4am to sign books.”
$35 gets you into the event and a copy of Gaiman’s newest, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. If you want to go with a friend and share the book, special $50 tickets allow two entries and one copy of the book.
While available, tickets are being sold at Copperfield’s stores. You can also get them online here.
