The LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary: Updated and Expanded national book tour with co-author of the book, Jason Fry, is going on right now and the first event of the tour was held at Philly Brick Fest a few weeks ago. Yesterday, I had the chance to attend the one here locally in San Diego.
This leg of the book tour was held at the Carlsbad City Library and the turnout was pretty good. There were activities that children could do such as coloring pages and watching animated Star Wars movies. There were also people dressed up as various Star Wars characters so kids can take a picture with them. The main attraction at the event was in the auditorium where Jason talked about the book and had a Star Wars trivia game. Kids who answered correctly were given a limited edition Jason Fry trading card. At the end of the presentation, Jason had a book signing where I had my book signed by him. If you followed my social media sites, you would’ve seen that I posted a picture a few weeks ago of an exclusive print that was also signed at PBF.
Overall, it was a pretty cool event and it was great meeting Jason again. The book tour will last until the end of the month so check out the schedule to see where Jason will be at next. You can also read my review of The Visual Dictionary here.
