The good news is that we will likely sell substantially more copies of Barbara Ehrenreich's Bright-Sided than venues in larger cities than Milwaukee tonight (11/4/09), when Ehrenreich appears at Alverno College. That's something to be proud of.
The bad news is that advance ticket sales are not good enough for us to fill the Pitman Theater. We're going to move the event to Alphonsa Hall.
The good new is that Alphonsa Hall is simply on the other side of the Parking lot from the theater. If you're coming from 39th street, it's west of the lot, instead of north. We'll have a bookseller stationed at the Pitman, and another in the lot, directing folks.
Unlike past Schwartz events, Ehrenreich's not going to presign copies. She really likes her time talking to readers, and we are at the manageable size where she can sign after the event.
More good news--you can buy your ticket at the door.
I don't have anymore bad news. I really liked the book and I'm excited to hear her talk.
