Jarrett Krosoczka!

NOTE: We've moved this event to the bookstore as thunderstorms, hot weather, and humidity are forecasted. The store will have the AC blasting! 

Join New York Times Bestselling-Author Jarrett J. Krosoczka as he celebrates the publication of his newest book—Jedi Academy: The Principal Strikes Back

Jarrett will be giving drawing demonstrations and leading young artists through the steps he takes to create graphic novels. The group will create one big collaborative comic. Drawing demo will last about one hour, followed by book signing.

And in the spirit of ComicCon and cosplay, come dressed up as your favorite Star Wars character!
