DK Star Wars Attack of the Authors East Coast Tour

So a few weeks ago, Dad read on TheForce.net that there was a DK Star Wars Attack of the Authors East Coast Tour coming to the Tribeca Barnes & Noble Bookstore in Manhattan today May 7, 2011. Dad read that there was going to be appearances there by talented Star Wars illustrators Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas, as well as, Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Also in attendance were costumed members of the 501st Legion, Darth Vader, Padme Amidala, and members of the R2 Builders Club, who brought a full-sized R2-D2 droid replica! Can't tell you how much fun we had today. I was stuck to Ashley Eckstein like glue and followed her everywhere she went. She was so nice. It was so cool. If you have the opportunity to go to future events on the tour I highly recommend going.
