Update on the Rick Riordan signing in Alabama! I contacted the bookstore hosting him to get a little more info and I am definitely glad I did!
Here’s some info I think you definitely need to know before the event!
* Rick will only be pre-signing copies of Mark of Athena. This is due to the fact that he has a very busy schedule. He is moving from city to city very quickly so he doesn’t have a lot of time in each city. Also, they are expecting a large turnout because, well, Rick Riordan is coming to town! What this means is that you will have to purchase a copy from Page & Palette (you can pre-order it though) and that you will not be able to get any books from home signed. Yeah, I know I was bummed too but he’s a busy man!
* Also, due to time Rick will not have time to take individual photos. You can take photos of him but you won’t be able to take photos with him. (Maybe I can get a photo of me with him in the background? Hmm…might be wishful thinking!)
* Get there EARLY! Again, Rick Riordan is coming to town so you should expect a large crowd. Large crowd = seats filling up FAST! The bookstore recommends getting there at 12:00 (event is at 2:30).
* Be prepared to walk. Rick will be part of the Grand Festival of Arts so there will be a lot of people there that aren’t there to see him as well. I went to the festival last year and met Erin Morganstern and had to park several blocks away. So those hideous but oh so comfortable shoes, time to pull them out of the closet! Haha. Just kidding you won’t have to walk that far. Just don't wear 4 inch heels or anything!
* You can pre-order your signed copy so you don’t have to wait in a potentially incredibly long line! Oh, and the first 1,000 people get a free tshirt! Awesome, right?
I think I have hit all the high points! Page & Palette has updated their events page with a FAQ about the event that you can look at here.
If you have any other questions you can contact the bookstore. Doug was very nice to me and answered all my questions. If you don’t want to contact the bookstore you can ask me and I’ll contact him for you and let you know!
Hope to see you there!
