EK Johnston and Alex Segura Talk Star Wars!
Old Firehouse Books is over-the-moon excited to have authors EK Johnston and Alex Segura join us for a virtual event! They will be discussing their YA Star Wars novels, Queen's Peril and Poe Dameron: Free Fall (and probably veering into other nerdy topics, too!) on Wednesday, September 23rd at 5:00pm MT. We've got a good feeling about this!
This event is free but we do ask that you register in advance. Attendees can watch live on the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page or they can register to receive a link to the Zoom meeting. Space in the Zoom meeting is limited, and voice and video are prohibited, but you can ask questions directly via the Facebook stream.
In Queen's Peril, EK Johnston follows Queen Padmé Amidala and her handmaidens through all the political intrigue and teenage rebellion that solidifies their friendships and helps them face a certain phantom menace on the horizon. Alex Segura digs into hotshot pilot Poe Dameron's backstory in Free Fall, telling tales of the time he ran away from home to discover just who he is in this too-big galaxy far away. Two very different and yet surprisingly similar characters in Star Wars canon, Padmé and Poe must both be wary that their idealism and independence doesn't get them into trouble--or that if it does, they have good friends who can get them back out!
We hope to see you at the event!
