    The Millenium Falcon is "the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy." So when Han Solo wins it in a game of sabacc, he and Chewbacca become kings of the smugglers--uncatchable, unstoppable. But with the Empire clamping down, Han knows his luck can't last. Still, when an old girlfriend who is now the leader of an insurgent Rebel group offers him a shot at an incredible fortune, Han can't resist. The plan seems a sure thing. The resistance will be light and the take enormous. Han and his friends will divide it equally with the Rebels. Too bad for Han that the planet of Ylesia is far from a pushover, that the Rebels have an agenda of their own, and that smuggler friends can often turn into enemies...quicker than lightspeed.


    As we have discussed in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/charlotte_nc/b10067/24926886/p1/?8]Book Club planning thread[/link] the period before the book club meets is a "no spoiler" rule meaning if you post spoilers they must be Highlight-To-Read. Example: This is highlight to read. After the meeting spoilers can be posted without the markup codes.

    We will probably meet for an hour to an hour and half.

    Everyone is welcome but please post that you will be attending so that we know how many seats to set up.

    Questions? Ask. If it is a more general book club question, please ask it in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/charlotte_nc/b10067/24926886/p1/?8]Book Club planning thread[/link]

    Also, we have our books for the rest of the year picked out:

    July - Han Solo Trilogy Book Three - Rebel Dawn
    August - Star Wars: An New Hope
    September - Empire Strikes Back
    October - Shadows of the Empire
    November - Return of the Jedi

    We will break in December for the annual Christmas party. :)

    Special Note! The Young Readers Club will be making their own Fandango puppets. The first 15 or so minutes of our meeting will be devoted to the adults making their own puppet. I'm going to ask Mrs. Minter to be the judge of the contest. ;)
