Hello and thanks for registering for the Diana Gabaldon event scheduled for this Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Gymnasium, Ernst Community Cultural Center on Northern VA Community College’s Annandale campus (8333 Little River Turnpike, Annandale 22003). Details, including parking info and a link to driving directions/campus map, are here:
Please note: the lots that are reserved for free event parking – B-8 through B-15 and B-17 – are available after 6:00 p.m. If you want to arrive before 6:00, you’ll need to pay to use the parking garage (adjacent to the surface lots right next to the Ernst Center). In case you require handicapped parking, it is available right across from the Ernst Center (spaces are marked) or in lot C-1.
This event is SOLD OUT and there is a waiting list. If your plans have changed, please cancel your registration so someone else can attend. The link to cancel is in the reminder message you received, or you can email (or call 703-324-8428) and we’ll take care of it for you.
When you arrive, please enter through the atrium of the Ernst Center. Doors to the gym will open at 6:45 p.m. so please try to arrive by that time (or earlier) so everyone can get seated and ready for the program to begin. Seating is first come, first served with chairs on the floor of the gym and additional space on bleachers. Note: as long as you secured a spot online, you don’t have to bring a printed copy of your registration email to the event. Also note: if you require handicapped seating, please let one of the ushers know and they will assist you.
The Library Foundation is expected to start selling books in the atrium before the event and we are hoping to have some pre-signed copies available. There will be an assortment of Diana’s books for sale, and you may also bring your own copies. The queue for book signing will form in the atrium immediately after Diana’s talk and Q&A. In the interest of time, there will be a limit of 2 books per person, and we ask that you help us keep the line moving by minimizing your time at the signing table. If you want to get additional items signed, you are welcome to get back on the end of the line and wait for a second turn.
Thanks and we’ll see you on Friday!
