DK Star Wars ‘Attack of the Authors’ East Coast Tour

Attack of the Authors

Our good friends over at DK Publishing just sent word of their new “Attack of the Authors” East Coast Tour to support the new book Star Wars: Battles for the Galaxy that comes out on April 18th.

You can find a pretty good preview of the book at the DK UK site, but we’ll have an early review sometime soon. Like most cool events, their tour isn’t coming close to me, but hopefully some of you are in their path and can report back with some photos. I should let them know that their logo for the event clearly includes Indiana, but I’ll let them off the hook.

Here are the details straight from DK:

DK Star Wars ‘Attack of the Authors’ East Coast Tour

Two weeks, ten events, unlimited fun!

Beginning in early May, a group of DK’s talented Star Wars authors and illustrators will hit the road, visiting bookstores, schools, and libraries for the DK Star Wars ‘Attack of the Authors’ East Coast Tour. Events will run from May 7th through May 15th, from Massachusetts, all the way down to Florida.

Tour guests include Ryder Windham, Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas, Jason Fry, and Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein (the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars). Co-sponsored by Mimobot and Her Universe, the ‘Attack of the Author’ events will also feature guest appearances by the costumed characters of the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion, members of the R2 Builders Club, as well as raffles, giveaways, and Star Wars activities.

A full-sized R2 droid replica will be coming along for the ride, collecting signatures of attending 501st Legion and R2 Builders Club members at each event, which will be raffled off to benefit a national charity organization after the tour. A full list of dates and author appearances can be found here.

Big thanks to DK for including us in their circle of awesome. We love their books around here and can’t wait to check this one out.

  • It may just be a kids book but I’m really eager to see Battles for the Galaxy.
