Yes, the day has finally come.
Free tickets for this year’s keynote speaker, George Saunders, become generally available this morning. The event takes place at 7:30 p.m. at the Missouri Theatre on Friday, April 19. Get your tickets here.
A few points:
As in previous years, we've limited the number of tickets per email address to 2. Please respect this limit and don’t use multiple email addresses to grab extra tickets.
Please don't speculatively reserve tickets if you're unlikely, in reality, to be able to attend. We have a lot of no-shows every year, and that means that a number of people who really want to come don't get to attend, which is a shame.
On which subject, if you subsequently discover that you're unable to make the event, please let us know, or cancel your tickets online, or give them to someone else.
Due to the fact that we schedule these events literally years ahead of time, the weekend of the festival is both Easter weekend and Passover - something we did not appreciate at that time we chose this date. We wanted you to be aware of this before you reserved your tickets…
