CO – Thrawn: Alliances Signing

Timothy Zahn, bestselling author of several Star Wars titles and comics, appears at Tattered Cover Book Store on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at 7:00 PM for a signing of his latest novel THRAWN: ALLIANCES.

Timothy Zahn is the Hugo award-winning author of more than forty novels, nearly ninety short stories and novellas, and four short-fiction collections. He will discuss and sign Thrawn: Alliances ($28.99 Del Rey Books), a Star Wars novel in which Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader team up against a threat to the Empire.

In what seems like a lifetime ago, General Anakin Skywalker and Commander Mitth’raw’nuruodo crossed paths for the first time. One on a desperate personal quest, the other with motives unknown and undisclosed. But facing a gauntlet of dangers on a far-flung world, they forged an uneasy alliance.

Now, thrust together once more, they find themselves bound again for the planet where they once fought side by side. There they will be doubly challenged–by a test of their allegiance to the Empire…and an enemy that threatens even their combined might.

CO – U-God Signing

Lamont “U-God” Hawkins, one of the founding members of Wu-Tang Clan, appears at Tattered Cover Book Store on Friday, March 16th at 7:00 PM to discuss and sign his memoir RAW: MY JOURNEY INTO THE WU-TANG, the explosive, never-before-told story behind the historic rise of hip-hop royalty.

Remarkably, none of the founding members have told their story–until now. Here, for the first time, the quiet one speaks. U-God’s unforgettable first-person account of his journey, from the streets of Brooklyn to some of the biggest stages around the world, is not only thoroughly affecting, unfiltered, and explosive but also captures, in vivid detail, the making of one of the greatest acts in American music history.
