Entertainment included stories from playwright Edgar Oliver, humorist Dawn J. Fraser and host Peter Aguero, plus an appearance by The Moth founder George Dawes Green. All except Green told personal stories from their own lives, and Gaiman reminded the crowd that his son, Michael, will be married in Asheville next month “to an Asheville lady.”

Congratulations to Michael Gaiman. Asheville is DELIGHTED to be your city-in-law. And Unchained Tour? Come back anytime, and stay longer.
