We're all familiar with her stellar resume, now come meet the Guest of Honor of C2E2 2014 in person here at Third Coast Comics in the  twilight of Geek Prom!

And now a few words from Gail Simone:

Because my flight to Chicago was cancelled due to 'maintenance,' I will not be able to make the signing at THIRD COAST COMICS in Chicago this Thursday night, 4/24/2014.
This breaks my heart as I love the people who run that shop and the people who are customers have been letting me know they were coming to the event all week. 
I am so, so sorry, there was nothing we could do. We tried every airline, we were willing to drive an extra three hours to leave from a different airport, there was no available flight to get us to Chicago on time.
So we are RESCHEDULING the signing. It is now taking place MONDAY 4/28/2014, from 5:00-9:00 pm. We are not giving up!
I understand the shop is not usually open on Monday so the owner, Terry, is making a special exception for this fun event. 
My understanding is that this is an awesome store.
If you are attending the event and you have friends you think might be attending, please spread the word to them so that they know of the change in date, okay?
Very, very sorry for the inconvenience, we tried EVERYTHING to make it on time and just had no other option. BUT we are going to make the event Monday very fun, so please come by!
