March 3 @ 10.00pm
We have the man himself coming to the BYU Bookstore next Monday. Brandon Sanderson will be visiting the BYU Bookstore for the release of his new novel, Words of Radiance, book two in The Stormlight Archive.
Prepayment is required to reserve a signed copy of the book so please order your copy online at www.byubookstore.com and select "Service Desk Pick-Up, 3rd Floor" in order to get it at the midnight release party.
The schedule is as follows; but please feel free to go to his personal website for more details.
Instead of waiting in the cold, this year the BYU Bookstore will be handing out numbered wristbands which will be distributed according to the order in which fans show up to wait in line outside the North West entrance to the BYU Bookstore. You must show proof of payment to receive a wristband. Then you are free to leave until the store reopens for the book release party.
The BYU Bookstore will reopen at 10:00pm to host the book release party. Even if you forgot to pre-order a signed book, come anyway. It's a great way to spend family home evening. Bring your friends/roommates/family/pet rock. In addition, there will be prizes to be won throughout the evening.
Around 10.45pm Brandon Sanderson will hold a reading and Q&A
At 11.45pm guests will be asked to begin lining up in numerical order, according to their pre-received wristbands, in preparation for the distribution of books at midnight. Once guests have picked up their book they are free to leave or get into a separate line to have their books personalized by Brandon Sanderson.
People will begin to receive their signed copies of Words of Radiance.
If you received a numbered wristband and do not pick up your book by 1.00am your numbered book will be given to someone else. If you show up after this point to pick up your book you will be given a different number or a refund.
Cash registers will close at 1.00am. All purchases must be made by this time.
Is there any better way to spend your Monday evening than this? It's going to be a late night but it's definitely going to be worth it. So, come, get your book, party with us for a little bit and then go home to stay up all night reading.
