Hans, Chewbacca and Lando are back

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..

Timothy Zahn will be coming to Books Inc. in Mountain View  for an adventure with Han Solo, Chewy, and Lando Calrissian in his latest book, Star Wars: Scoundrels. Hans Solo is in trouble again, broke and in debt to Jabba the Hutt. To save himself this time, “All he has to do is infiltrate the ultra-fortified stronghold of a Black Sun crime syndicate underboss and crack the galaxy’s most notoriously impregnable safe.” No problem.

Also be on the lookout for a squad of Storm Troopers from Golden Gate Garrison of the 501st Legion.They will be there, promoting their mission to promote Star Wars wearing detailed replica costumes of SW villains while raising money for charity.

Justice in Person

How often do you get a chance to see a Supreme Court Justice in person?

I remember dreaming about being a lawyer as a middle school kid and wishing that I could clerk for a Supreme Court Justice. That was in the days before women ever held such august positions. I was so excited when Sandra Day O’Connor was appointed to the Court in 1981, although I’d already given up my plans to join her.

Kepler’s is hosting an event in January in which Her Honor Sonia Sotomayor, the first hispanic justice and third woman appointed to the court, will be speaking with Belva Davis. This event is sure to sell out, so if you want to go, I’d buy tickets soon.
