Star Wars: Kenobi Launch Event in Memphis, TN.
Star Wars: Kenobi tells the story of a lone Jedi who delivers an infant to his family on the remote planet Tatooine, and of the early struggles that come with moving to the harsh planet. For months, Star Wars fans have been waiting in eager anticipation for this book, and finally the release date is here!
To help celebrate this release, there was a launch event at The Booksellers at Laurelwood in Memphis, TN. Author John Jackson Miller was there, along with a 501st presence and a nice crowd of people. We were pleased to be there as well to cover the event, along with the Memphis Fanforce! (Click on all the images below to enlarge.)
I’ve never been to The Booksellers at Laurelwood in Memphis; it’s an attractive bookstore. It’s very inviting inside, and that along with the friendly staff made it the perfect location for this event.
John began the event welcoming the fans who were gathered, and began an introduction about himself, a brief personal publishing history, and discussed books such as Knight Errant, Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories, and of course, Kenobi. John then opened the floor to an audience Q&A, and an enthusiastic discussion ensued.
Afterward, everyone was invited to come up and have their books, comics and posters signed by John.
All during the event, everyone had a great time, due in no small part to the pleasant demeanor of John. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: John Jackson Miller is truly the nicest man you’ll ever meet. He gave everyone who came up to him warm, personal attention, and it’s nice to be around someone so inviting and courteous.
Thank you to everyone involved in making this event happen, and thank you John for the opportunity! And congratulations on your newest book!
