Hi Neil I was wondering if you will be doing a signing at the Chicago reading or is it just a reading. My daughter and I both ejoyed Coraline. Also do you have any idea why they state that the reading is for ages 10 and up? Thanks. Geoff

Not sure -- I'll do what the festival tells me to do. In the past there's always been a signing afterwards. I suspect that "10 and up" is because they figure that making kids under 10 sit for 3 hours comes under the heading of a cruel and unusual punishment.
