Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to purchase a book, or can I bring my own book(s)? 

A book purchase is required to participate in the post-show signing. There will be two titles for sale on site – The Miraculous Adventures of Edward Tulane and her new book Beverly, Right Here.

Where do I purchase a book(s)? 

Books will be available for purchase in the Target Atrium at the merchandise table along the line to where Kate will be signing.

May I take photos? 

You may take candid photos during the signing line. However, because of the crowd size and time constraints, there will be no posed photos. If you’d like to take a picture with Kate while she is signing your book, a MN Opera representative will be on hand to take the photo with your camera or smartphone.

Is there an age requirement for attendance?  

Edward Tulane  explores complex themes such as death and loss and is recommended for children ages 8 and up. Children ages 6 and older are welcome and must be accompanied by an adult. Each audience member must have a ticket.
