Event: DARTH VADER AND FRIENDS: An Afternoon with Author Jeffrey Brown
Location: Pittsburg, PA
Date: 12/5/2015

We were invited to come out to a book signing for Jeffrey Brown, author of Darth Vader and Friends. We also invited 501st Garrison Carida to join us.

The event began with the author talking to the kids and their families. While they were having a question and answer session, we waited in the lobby of one of the buildings in downtown Pittsburgh. Once they were done, the kids came out and we greeted them, much to their surprise. We then went to another building while Jeffrey Brown signed books. Once the kids were done, they came over to meet us and do some pictures. One of the highlights of the event was standing outside on the sidewalk talking and waving at everyone walking by while we waited for the session to be over.

Fun event, but could have been planned better on their end for using us. There was a lot of standing around at the beginning, but overall it was fun and a unique troop. I think some people also learned to NOT let me outside with no adult supervision since I will yell and wave at people across the street and draw them over to us.
