Make your own Death Star piñata for May the Fourth, a Star Wars birthday party, or a release party for Star Wars: The Force Awakens! (Bonus points if you use a lightsaber to take a whack at it!)
It’s another amazing week for bookish events in New York City. Come out and celebrate debuts from authors like Amy Fleisher Madden and Zoe Pilger. If you missed out seeing Amber Tamblyn read at Housing Works a few weeks back, you’ll have another chance at the Strand on Thursday. There are even a few opportunities to support NYC writing programs at The New School and NYU. Make sure to tweet at us to let us know where you went!
For The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, I wanted to speak the awesomest geeky gals in the biz, all about how their experience as a fan has influenced and shaped their lives. Unfortunately, due to a tight page count and a super-mean editor (just kidding, love you Blair! <3), we could only fit a few interviews into the final book. But there was so much goodness left over that I just had to share their geek girl wisdom with the world.
Today, I bring you some fangirl fabulousness from the wicked women of comics, including Janelle Asselin, Leigh Lahav, Amy Ratcliffe, Meaghan Carter, and Stephanie Cooke.
