Star Wars Celebration | Del Rey’s Schedule for Giveaways, Signings, and Panels

Star Wars Celebration | Del Rey’s Schedule for Giveaways, Signings, and Panels

With Star Wars Celebration just a few weeks away, Del Rey has released it’s schedule for book signings, panels, and giveaways. To get the most out of your book-loving plans, check out the information below:

Where is the Del Rey Star Wars Booth?

BOOTH #2522, our PRH friends at Random House Audio and DK will be next to us, so come hang out and say hello to everyone.

What is going on at the booth?

Author signings, meet members of the Del Rey team, pick up a Del Rey sampler, books for sale and more fun giveaways. Geek out with us about Star Wars books! There will probably be a few surprises throughout the weekend, and generally the booth is just a hub of fun activity.

Panels

Our panels are all taking place as part of the Behind the Scenes stage – W304

Thursday 2:30 pm – 3:30 I’ll Take Droids for $500, Obi-Wan

Test your Star Wars knowledge, competing head-to-head with Chuck Wendig and Timothy Zahn. Narrator Marc Thompson will host and one lucky audience member will have a chance to compete onstage as a contestant!

Friday 4:30 pm – 5:30 Lucasfilm Publishing Writers’ Roundtable

A round table featuring members of the Lucasfilm team and a collection of Star Wars writers from across publishers, including Del Rey authors like Tim Zahn and Delilah S. Dawson.

Saturday 1:00 pm – 2:00 Del Rey Books, Behind the Scenes

Del Rey has been publishing Star Wars books since 1976. Find out what we have in the works for 2017 and beyond. Join authors Chuck Wendig (Empire’s End), Christie Golden (Inferno Squadron), Timothy Zahn (Thrawn), and Delilah S. Dawson (The Perfect Weapon). Moderator: Elizabeth Schaefer, Senior Editor at Del Rey Books

What are Star Wars University panels?

These are individual author talks. The exact scope and focus is unique to each author, and more information on each session will be available closer to the show. These are great for aspiring writers or anyone else who wants to learn more about the writing process. All the University Writing Workshops are in W300.

Thursday 5:00 pm – 6:00  Star Wars University: Chuck Wendig

Friday 12:30 pm – 1:30  Star Wars University: Delilah Dawson

Friday 2:00 pm – 3:00  Star Wars University: Tim Zahn

Saturday 3:30 pm – 4:30  Star Wars University: Christie Golden

Sunday 12:30pm – 1:30  Star Wars University: John Jackson Miller

 

SIGNINGS

Our signings are split between the Del Rey Booth (2522) and the Barnes & Noble Booth (2022). Why did we split them up? Two locations means we can have more signings, extend signings longer, etc. ALL OF OUR SIGNINGS ARE FREE and many will have free giveaways – like books and posters, but some will not. At all signings we will have copies of books available to buy, which the authors are happy to sign. Or, if you bring your own copy from home they will sign that too! Our authors are cool like that.

Lines for signings will form no sooner than 5-10 minutes before the signing time. We have plenty of giveaways, and we work really hard to manage our lines, so no need to try and line up earlier. We want you to meet your favorite authors just as much as you do!

(Please note: this schedule is subject to change. We suggest checking on social media each day or visiting the booth for the most up to date schedule. Circumstances may require us to move or reschedule a signing, add more signing times, or make other changes)
