    Dan Wallace, author of the many celebrated Star Wars works, including the new Star Wars: Battles for the Galaxy and Star Wars: The Essential Atlas will be at the Hernando Public Library on May 5th at 6:30pm for an appearance in connection with what has become our holiday, May the 4th.

    For those of you who were with us in 2007 at Dan's appearance at the Memphis Public Library, you'll remember that Dan is a joy to talk to and really knows his Star Wars stuff.

    The Hernando Library is looking for costumers to help escort Dan in and do some photo ops with him, so costuming is encouraged! Help us make Dan's visit to the area a memorable one! Let me know if you can make it in costume. :) I'll post more details in the thread as I get them like if there will be an area to change and if we can maybe take Dan to dinner or help out in any way.

    Nicki and I are looking forward to it. It's the library we go to.

    To get there from Memphis take I-55 south to the Hernando/Commerce Street exit. Go right/west and cross Hwy 51 at the Hernando Court House Square. The library will be on the right about a block down from 51. Parking on the sides and rear of the building.

    The "Pig" will be making the trek across state lines for this one.... (barring DRL issues, of course). Hoping to drag at least a couple of Jedi along for the ride... Looking forward to it.

    With the Interstate closed between here and there... We won't be making it for this one. Maybe next time there won't be epic flooding... Wouldn't want my x-wing to get stuck in the new dagobah swamp...
    Wouldn't mind going to Tatooine about now... Nice and Dry...

    Sorry to hear that, BJ. :(

    You guys stay dry, and we'll try to do the same!


    For dinner I have, Lin, Nicki, Tim, Traci (is it bad that I typed out Trim?), Dan and myself. I reserved the private room at the restaurant, but we may not need it if it's just us.
