I have attended several events over the years. I do not recall numbered tickets. Seating is first come first served. For very popular authors, the organizers have shifted the venue to an auditorium. Most authors stay to sign all books, but I lack the data or universal experience to know that all do. Very popular authors will have a stack of pre signed books, which you may buy but the autograph will not be personalized.
