BookPeople is charging $30 for a ticket to the noon book-signing, a purchase price that includes a wristband for the signing line and a copy of the book.

The bookstore says that anyone without a ticket will not be permitted to line up or be allowed in or near the event space. Because of security concerns, the retailer is asking the public to leave large bags, purses, and personal items at home.

“Any personal items that cannot be pocketed will not be permitted in the signing space and will be checked upon entry to the store. This includes backpacks, purses, shopping bags, etc.” BookPeople says on its website promoting the event.
