Huzzah for an appearance in Seattle! Looks like I'll finally get to see His Jim-ness in person. Some questions, though:

  • When I search for "University Bookstore Seattle" online, I find the University of Washington bookstore, but when I search for "University Temple Seattle" I find this church (which also matches the listed address). Neither has Jim's visit on their online calendar. So, uh, which is it being held at, a bookstore or a church?
  • Are tickets required? If so, is attendance limited?
  • What actually goes on at the event? Q&A, book signing, arm wresting...?

EDIT TO ADD: Oh, also, I forgot - one of my good friends burns when he enters churches, usually. Can we make sure he gets an explicit invite at the door in case that's an issue?

Edge,

Here is a Link to the one done for Cold Days.  There is contact information on it and you might get some information about the Skin Game event from them.

Oh, I'd love to go. But, I do have a baby (who will be 6 months old at the time) that I would also need to take with me. Does anyone know if it's okay to take a baby to the signing? :(

Spot, I'd call the venue and ask. 

On the other hand, I would not.  I just go, take spotlett, and if spotlett get's talkative ... take her out to the lobby.

That's what Mr Spot said. He said he'll be on baby duty and take her outside if she gets too loud. He said we can sit at the back. Which means we are going! *woot woot*

I know there were several parents at the last one here and frankly it didn't seem to be a big deal. Everyone at the event seemed very courteous.

I've been checking everyday for a link to buy tickets (as I'm sure some of you are too). Recently, the UW Bookstore finally added a link for tickets: http://www2.bookstore.washington.edu/_events/events_cal.taf?evmonth=05&evyear=2014&eventid=2014012312392400

However, the link only places a pre-autographed copy of Skin Game in the shopping cart. Am I missing something or will we just have to continue waiting for a real ticket link?

Also, this note was added to the event:
One ticket is free with your purchase of Skin Game: Book 15 of The Dresden Files from University Book Store beginning May 27, 2014. Otherwise, tickets are $10. Each ticket admits one person to the event.

Which reminds me, I take it we can still purchase Skin Game at the event if we choose to do so, correct?

Yup. The problem was the tickets aren't in yet, but they should be in a couple weeks.

Will the signing only be for Skin Game or will I be able to have him sign Dead Beat as well?

Contact the venue and find out what their rules are. 

In the past, Jim  has allowed 2 books per person through the line.  Should you have more than that, if the venue allows it, you can get back in line for more.

Awesome, I'm so happy he's coming back to Seattle! My kids and I still talk about the last one of these we went to.

So, the major question: Will Bjorn be there? I'm actually torn now between asking for my name on the autograph vs. Bjorn. Maybe I'll ask for First Name 'Bjorn' Last Name. :P

Just a heads up: the online tickets ($10 each) will go on sale on May 27th when the book comes out. Alternatively, if you're in the Seattle area, you automatically get a free ticket when you buy Skin Game at the UW Bookstore in person.
