Calling all Star Wars fans - in particular those who live in and around San Francisco. This is a social group for fans of any and all aspects of the Star Wars universe - movies, books, games, comics, cosplay, and all the rest.
We have a monthly gathering in a downtown SF pub, with some forays around the Bay in the Summer. Beyond that, we're very open minded about what events we host - book club, con visits, Rancho Obi Wan, movie viewings, quizzes, meetups with the Rebel Legion/501st/Mercs/Saber guild ... the possibilities are endless. And of course something around May 4th.
Note in line with meetup.com policies, all our events are targeted at Star Wars fans over the age of 18
Who's up for a bunch of awesome Star Wars short stories?
From a Certain Point of View collects 40 short stories that explore locations, events, etc. from Star Wars (the original film) from a different perspective, mostly centering around minor characters in the film. It was published in 2017, for the film's 40th anniversary.
Get started reading ASAP, as this book is longer than what we've tackled before (450 pages (print/digital), 15 hours (audiobook)).
The book and audiobook are widely available at libraries, digital and hard copies (depending on what you have access to). Digital copies can be found at overdrive.com if you connect your library card(s) to it. Amazon link: shorturl.at/doquT.
Stating the obvious: Read the book before the meetup; the conversation will be riddled with spoilers. Please do not discuss/spoil anything from chapters 21 and beyond during the meetup!!!
Zoom link will be sent to attendees before the time of the meetup.
