Please join us on Saturday, March 7th at 1:00pm for a very special launch event for Blueberry Girl, a new picture book by New York Times best-selling author and 2009 Newbery Medalist NEIL GAIMAN and Will Eisner and World Fantasy Award winning artist CHARLES VESS. Having collaborated on the World Fantasy Award-winning Sandman comic and the World Fantasy Award-winning graphic novel, Stardust, NEIL GAIMAN and CHARLES VESS have once again collaborated to create their first picture book together, a stunning, poetic journey, Blueberry Girl.

Beginning at 1pm, NEIL GAIMAN will read Blueberry Girl, after which CHARLES VESS will give a slide show presentation on the creation of the artwork for this gorgeous picture book. Then, both author and artist will answer questions from the audience. Following this, they will both sign copies of Blueberry Girl and all their other wonderful books. A portion of all sales of Blueberry Girl made at the event will go to RAINN, the nation's largest organization devoted to preventing violence against women and assisting the victims of such attacks.

So as to make sure as many people as possible can get their books signed, we are establishing a limit of 3 books per person to be signed by Neil Gaiman; there is no limit on the number of books you may have signed by Charles Vess. Finally, so no one will have to stand in line for too long, we will be giving out numbers to everyone who wishes to get books signed. We will line people up to get their books signed in number order, 30 at a time, so everone else can enjoy browsing, chatting, etc. Please make sure you get a number at the front counter before proceeding to the back of the store where the event will take place.
