Volratho posted a topic in Events and SigningsLast Update (probably): Here is a link to the Arcanum page for this event: Oathbringer Chicago Signing UPDATE: Brandon is feeling a little under the weather, so in order to expedite the event there will only be one line. He will personalize ONE book and sign up to THREE additional books per fan. He will not be able to pose for photos or take questions from the signing line. If you have more books than that, you can wait until the very end if you wish, but be forewarned that it may be a late night. Thank you for your understanding as we try and help him get the rest he needs. Hey Everyone, So the tour dates and locations dropped a few days ago, and I was surprised to not see any thread pop up for Chicago yet. He is coming back to the Anderson's in Naperville, for the Chicago natives to this forum this should be of no surprise, I is there at least every other time he comes out this way. As usual, you will have to by your copy of Oathbringer from the store in order to get it signed/personalized, but he usually has the rule of doing up to three personalizations and as many signatures as you have books. At least this has been the case in the past, it depends on the staff at Anderson's but they have almost ways gone above an beyond in their help of the fans. I will definitely be there, and I will have my recording equipment as usual, and im not usually the only one, so we should be good for an audio recording of the event. If someone does not have any questions they would like to have asked let us know, I know the community, especially the Chicago regulars, can easily provide you a plethora of possible questions. The location for this event will not be at the book store proper this time. Event date: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 - 6:00pm Event address: Community Christian Church 1635 Emerson Ln Naperville, IL 60540
EDIT #1: Event is over, you can find my write-up and recordings in this post. EDIT #2: Here's a [link] to the transcript. In case you've missed the news, Brandon will be in the Oak Brook Barnes & Noble on October 12. For quick reference, here's the snippet from his website: The important bit is that the event will have two parts (as is usual for Brandon's signings), each one with different admission rules. The first part (which will likely consist of a story, a Q&A, and a reading) is free and open to anyone and everyone, while the second part (the signing & personalization) requires a purchase of Shadows of Self on the spot. Which, I believe, is more than a little annoying, but their store, their rules (also, guess who is never preordering from B&N ever again). Come back to the Old Orchard Barnes & Noble, Brandon, they are nicer there! They are 10 minutes away from my house, not hour and a half... Anyway, I'll be there. I'll probably show up a little earlier (around 6, if I can), bother the personnel, and try to ambush Brandon if he makes the mistake of showing up early. For the event itself, I try to ask a non-spoilery Cosmere question during the general Q&A (you have me to thank for extracting the knowledge that unicorns do not exist in the Cosmere, thankyouverymuch), 2-3 juicy questions when it's my turn for signing & personalization, and a dozen or two after the event, if Brandon has time for 10 minutes of lightning Q&A. All of the events I've been to, he's been able to stay for a bit after and suffer my pestering, but there are no guarantees. So in this context, I'll be thinking about interesting questions in the next few days (feel free to post yours - obviously I can't promise I'll ask them for you, but if I like something I'll try to put it on my list). I'll also try to post a final list before the event, as well as an audio recording after. Kurk EDIT: Text of transcript as of 12/2016 for word-searching:
Hey everyone! During the Calmaity tour Brandon was handing out some awesome Reckoners postcards. When you view them one way you see the original city but then when you tilt the cards another way you see the Reckoners equivalent. They are super cool. My personal favorite is the one from Calamity, but mostly because of the postcard tagline. Chicago/Newcago New York/Babilar Calamity Spoiler
