Event

University Book Store presents: Terry Pratchett
For nearly three decades, Terry Pratchett has enthralled millions of fans worldwide with his irreverent, wonderfully funny satires set in the fabulously imaginative Discworld, a universe remarkably similar to our own. From sports to religion, politics to education, science to capitalism, and everything in between, Pratchett has skewered sacred cows with both laughter and wisdom, and exposed our warts, foibles, and eccentricities in a unique, entertaining, and ultimately serious way.
At long last, Lady Sybil has lured her husband, Sam Vimes, on a well-deserved holiday away from the crime and grime of Ankh-Morpork. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper.
Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it's not long before a body is discovered, and Samout of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife)must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done. As he sets off on the chase, though, he must remember to watch where he steps. . . . This is the countryside, after all, and the streets most definitely are not paved with gold.

Hailed as the "purely funniest English writer since Wodehouse" (Washington Post Book World), with a "satirist's instinct for the absurd and a cartoonist's eye for the telling detail" (Daily Telegraph, London), Terry Pratchett offers a novel of crime, class, prejudice, and punishment that shows this master at his dazzling best.
Terry Pratchett is one of the world's most popular authors. His acclaimed novels have sold more than 75 million copies worldwide. In January 2009, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Pratchett a Knight Bachelor in recognition of his "services to literature." Sir Terry lives in England.

Terry will appear in conversation with The Stranger's Paul Constant!

Tickets are $30 and include a copy of Snuff, to be picked up at the event. Otherwise, tickets are $10 (admission only).

JUST ADDED:
In order to accommodate the expected crowds, Sir Terry Pratchett will be unable to personally sign books at the event, however a selection of pre-autographed books will be available. The autograph consists of a special stamp, created just for the Snuff tour.
