The Smart Chicks Tour is coming to Lansing, Michigan and Schuler Books & Music is selling tickets for the event. Basically, instead of having people preorder books, they are charging everyone $5 and then you’ll get it back as a gift card the day of the event. It’s simply to get a ticket for the line and only the first 100 tickets sold are guaranteed seats. If you’re going (and I’m expecting all of my SE MI peeps to be there), I would get your tickets soon.
