In celebration of Star Wars’ Clone Wars (the movie) release, Changing Hands Bookstore presents Karen Traviss, author of seven Star Wars novels, who will read from and discuss her latest Star Wars adventure, The Clone Wars.

And yes, of course, Storm Troopers will make an appearance.

In The Clone Wars and across the galaxy, the Clone Wars are raging. The Separatists, led by Count Dooku, the onetime Jedi and now secret Sith Lord, continue to press forward, and more and more worlds are either falling, or seceding and joining the cause. Under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic heroically battles on, championed by its huge army of cloned soldiers and their Jedi generals.

Anakin Skywalker, believed by some to be the prophesied “Chosen One” destined to bring balance to the Force, is now a Jedi Knight under the tutelage of his Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Death is a constant possibility—but there’s no time for Anakin to question his latest orders: He and Obi-Wan have been assigned a new mission, and failure is not an option. Jabba the Hutt’s infant son has been kidnapped, and the vile gangster has sought to enlist the Jedi for help. Much is at stake: A grateful Jabba might allow the Republic access to the Hutt-controlled space lanes that the Grand Army desperately needs in order to beat the Separatists into submission.

It’s up to Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Anakin’s new apprentice Ahsoka, a brash and inexperienced young Padawan to track down the evidence and retrieve the missing Huttlet. But the Republic is not the only power that craves access to those space lanes. Count Dooku, determined to win the prize for the Separatists, has set a trap for the Jedi. When they find the Huttlet, they will also find Dooku’s master assassin, Asajj Ventress, and countless legions of battle droids waiting to spring a trap.

On Monday, July 28th at 7pm Jedi Knights of all ages are welcome to visit with Karen Traviss–who will be joined by the Members of the 501st Legion’s Dune Sea Garrison– as she signs and discusses The Clone Wars at Changing Hands Bookstore.

seems like this theme has been a bit overdone, but Clone Wars looks fun to watch nonetheless
