Monday, October 24, 2011 - 9:00pm to Tuesday, October 25, 2011 - 12:30am

We don't want you to have to wait any longer than is necessary to dig in to the much-anticipated latest Murakami novel -- that's why on the evening of Monday, October 24, Green Apple will stay open beyond our usual 10:30 pm closing time to celebrate this book and one of our favorite authors, and we'll start handing it out at the stroke of midnight. We've arranged for a taco truck to be out front from 9:30pm to 12:30am, and if you pre-purchase the book (any time between now and 11:59pm on October 24, either in the store or online), we'll give you a taco and a beer to hold you over until the book releases at midnight. Save the date, pre-purchase your copy, and join us for a fantstic late night of Green Apple, excellent literature, and -- perhaps even most noteworthy -- tacos in the Richmond.

UPDATE: Anyone who buys their copy of 1Q84 before midnight on the
24th will be entered to win a raffle drawing for one of 10 AUTOGRAPHED
COPIES of the book. That's a signed first edition of a Murakami novel,
folks. That's a big deal. So pre-order away!
