Tickets were still available as of 5:30 p.m., according to the above link to the event.
O'Reilly, who has 12 straight New York Times bestsellers, according to his website, has "changed the way we read history" with his recent books on Lincoln, Kennedy and Jesus, written with writer Martin Dugard, who has helped research the books.
Later this year, O'Reilly will be appearing in several cities for his "Bolder Fresher Tour". The title of the tour is in reference to his autobiography that, of all his books, provides the most information about his childhood while also including much about O'Reilly's political views.
Novelist Margaret Atwood is scheduled to read and sign books at 12:30 p.m. April 13 at the Scott Conference Center of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and Eric Schlosser is scheduled on April 2 for Creighton University's Department of History Ross Horning Lecture.
