We had Neil Gaiman

Well maybe you knew that.

Anyway, NEIL GAIMAN! WOW that was cool!

He was here a total of 11 hours, just signing! I know of no other author on the planet that would be willing to do that. It was awesome and we all are in awe of the powerful man that is.

People stood in line for up to 9 hours! 9 hours! and we had at least 2000 people and Gaiman probably signed over 6000 signatures!

Which means we might have broke a world record. Which we have applied for, and are waiting for information to submit our footage and details.

The reality is, we had no idea so many people would show up, and that it would go from 4pm to 3:15 am.

The best part is that all of the Gaiman fans were absolutely wonderful to work with. All of them were patient and kind and happy to just be there and meet Gaiman from anywhere between 2-20 seconds. We even had a little girl come for her 11th birthday! It was just such a treat to have people come to support our bookstore and express their enjoyment for Gaiman and the whole event. We THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for being truly wonderful! We could not have asked for a better group of people to spend the night with!

Happy Reading!
