We have an author visiting us next week that will please Jedi masters and lil' Padawans alike.
Mark Clark—the author of Star Wars FAQ: Everything Left to Know About the Trilogy That Changed the Movies—will talk about a galaxy far, far away at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 8., at our Main Branch.
He'll discuss the origins of Star Wars and explore how behind-the-scenes drama during the writing of Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi influenced the current blockbuster Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
Clark is a polymath of geek culture. In addition to Star Wars FAQ, he's also written two books about Star Trek and a critical filmography of 1960s horror cinema.
The talk is free and open to everyone. You can register for it on Mentor Public Library's website or by calling 440-255-8811 ext. 216.
By the way, if you or your kids love Star Wars, then we have all kind of books, videos, albums and even video games that you can borrow for free with your library card.
