Jill provided ice-cold, refreshing Dr. Pepper (in glass bottles!) and thematic cookies; embarrassed her son; and introduced us to the book and characters via a game of "Paradise Bingo." It was lots of fun and y'all should go pick up a signed copy or two.
While at BookPeople, we happened on a display of a giant-sized Origami Yoda:
DARTH PAPER STRIKES BACK, at 7 PM on Wednesday, August 24. DARTH PAPER is a sequel to the terrific THE STRANGE CASE OF ORIGAMI YODA (And, in the category of "it's cooler on Tatooine," if things hold up, it will mark the 70th day of 100+ degree heat this year here in Austin, breaking a record that's stood since 1925.).
So, anyway, BookPeople is having a contest and had folks take pictures of Origami Yoda around town. The winner gets the first spot in the signing line. Check out (and vote for) the finalists here.
Personally, I like the one with the dinosaur. But I bet you knew that already...
P.S. The day we tie the record is the release date of the sizzling graphic novel, TANTALIZE: KIEREN'S STORY.
