MA – Be Prepared to Smile Signing


Cartoonists Raina Telgemeier and Vera Brosgol appear at An Unlikely Story on Monday, February 11, 2019 at 6:30 PM. They’ll discuss their work, do some drawing, host a Q&A, and sign books!


Tickets will go on sale, Monday, January 28th at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $15, admit two people, and include a coupon for the purchase of any of Raina or Vera’s books the day of the event. Overflow tickets will go on sale at 7pm Monday the 28th.

Raina and Vera are rock stars in the literary world; so these tickets are going to hot tickets! We’ve found that Eventbrite is our most democratic sales channel. It acts as a lottery of sorts, similar to calls to Ticketmaster. Please note that we do not sell tickets in advance of the on sale date and time.
