Oh my. 300 Lucky fans will have a chance to to attend the first Canadian book signing with E.L. James, author of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The event is scheduled for February 16, 2014, just a couple of days short of a year from the much anticipated release of the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaption of book one in the trilogy on Valentine’s Day 2015. It will launch a year-long tease as we count the days to the movie release!
The event will be held at Chapters Robson, at 788 Robson St.,in Vancouver, BC.
There seem to be a lot of rules and regulations for this signing, unlike some of the others that E.L.James has done in the United States, where she would sign until the line was finished and her hand hurt from writing to much!
Here is how the day will go:
It will begin with the distribution of wristbands for the event at 10 am. Only the first 300 people on line will get wristbands, according to a report from the store. The first 100 of the 300 customers to purchase ONE (1) E.L. James hardcover book at Chapters Robson on the day of the event will receive a special wristband for front of the line priority access. All wristbands will be distributed beginning at 10:00 am on Sunday, February 16th at Chapters Robson.
