Hello all!

Chris Merritt and I have put together a great book, Knott's Preserved: From Boysenberry to Theme Park, the History of Knott's Berry Farm, and will hold a few events to celebrate its upcoming and very limited release. Please stop by and visit us at one of these signings or order your tickets to the grand Knott's Preserved event we've planned at Knott's Berry Farm on April 18.

SIGNINGS:
The Autry National Center and Museum
Saturday, April 17, 2-4pm
4700 Western Heritage Way, Griffith Park, Los Angeles, CA

The Museum of Neon Art
Thursday, April 22, 7-9pm
136 West 4th Street, downtown Los Angeles, CA

THE BIG EVENT:
Knott's Berry Farm
Sunday, April 18, all day
8039 Beach Boulevard, Buena Park, CA

The morning book signing at the Chicken Dinner Restaurant is open to all, but the all-day ticketed event is truly limited. Here's a rundown of the April 18 big event:

All day: Admission to Knott's Berry Farm!

10am–noon: Book signing with authors Eric Lynxwiler, Chris Merritt and Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter.

Throughout the morning:
Walking tours of Walter Knott's Ghost Town guided by Orange County historians Phil Brigandio and Chris Jepsen.

3pm: A Audio-visual trip through Knott's Berry Farm's origins hosted by Chris Merritt at the Bird Cage Theatre. Doors open at 2:30pm.
5pm: A dinner buffet at the Chicken Dinner Restaurant.

8pm: A once-in-a-lifetime Q&A with a few of Knott's great designers including Rolly Crump and Chris Crump who designed Knott's Bear-y Tales; John Waite who themed the park's early Halloween Haunt events; Eddie Sotto, the designer behind the Wacky Soap Box Racers, and Dean Davisson who headed the park's public relations department during Knott's greatest years of expansion, 1958–1976. Doors open at 7:30pm at the Bird Cage Theatre.

Yes, the book signings are open to the public, but that big, April 18, Knott's Berry Farm event is ticketed and very, very limited. On March 18th, a downloadable pdf will become available at KnottsPreserved.com. Fax that order form to Knott's to ensure your seat in the Bird Cage Theatre and to buy a hardcover edition of Knott's Preserved!

Thanks everyone!
