Legendary Author Neil Gaimen at Old Firehouse Books
Friday, February 06, 2015
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Neil Gaiman, celebrated author of American Gods, Coraline, and the Sandman graphic novel series, will be appearing in Fort Collins on Friday, February 6 at Old Firehouse Books, 232 Walnut Street. His appearance is the result of Old Firehouse Books winning a national competition by selling the most copies of Gaiman’s most recent novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Over 209 copies of the book were sold, doubling the sales of other competing stores, and Old Firehouse Books owes a world of gratitude to their customers and Neil Gaiman’s incredible fans. Gaiman will sign books, greet fans, and take photos starting at 4pm on February 6. In order to join the signing line, each customer must purchase a copy of Neil Gaiman’s latest book, Trigger Warning. Customers who supported us in the sales contest by purchasing a copy of The Ocean at the End of the Lane will not be required to make an additional purchase. Trigger Warning is Gaiman’s latest collection of short stories—an anthology that explores the masks we all wear, and the people we are beneath them, in order to explore our vulnerabilities and our truest selves. As our way of thanking Neil Gaiman and our community, 10% of all Trigger Warning sales made on February 6 will be donated to the Poudre River Public Library District.
