Comments: As part of our Summer Reading Program, we are hosting Star Wars author John Jackson Miller for a "meet the author" night (a free public event) where he will talk about his Star Wars work, take questions and sell/sign his books. We would love to have some costumed Star Wars characters in attendance as well - perhaps some Stormtroopers - to add to the festive atmosphere. We'll likely also have some refreshments and door prizes, and we'll encourage attendees to come in costume if they wish. Note: the event starts at 7:30 but people will likely start arriving at 7:00 or earlier so it would be fine for costumed characters to arrive in time for pre-show mingling.

Attendees:

I love John Jackson Miller's SW books! I don't know if I'll be able to make it on a Tuesday night though.

Since this guy wrote the 'prequel' book to Star Wars Rebels, I'm even more inclined to start that Kanan Jarrus costume I've been thinking about...

One way or the other I'll likely attend this one.

From the host...

As I mentioned, the new venue – Rocky Run Middle School – is at 4400 Stringfellow Road in Chantilly. The cafeteria space is nice and big, it’s just to the right after you walk into the school’s main entrance. When members of your group arrive, we should be set up to check in registrants outside the cafeteria. I’ll make sure they have your name and if you could get me any others that would be great. Although in a pinch, if someone says they are with the 501st Legion/Garrison Tyranus I’ll tell the ushers to let them in. (As if they would deny entry to a Stormtrooper or similar, haha!) We’re expecting a fairly big crowd of 250 people. FYI, I plan to be on site by 5:00…we expect audience members will start showing up by 6:30 and we’ll begin admitting them into the cafeteria at 7:00.

**I found out an important traffic/parking detail from my school contact: there is a new traffic pattern with posted signs saying cars cannot turn left into the school’s parking lot off of Stringfellow (if they are coming from the Fair Lakes area). Instead, cars should turn left at the next street (Poplar Tree) in order to enter the parking lot. Apparently, the police will ticket people who make the illegal left – so please alert any 501st-ers about this. Thanks!
