The morning of the 25th, the first day of C2E2 was quiet. Little did we know how much would change for us by the end of the day.
Getting the booth ready in the morning.
Of course, the big galaxy-shaking news dropped that day, “The EU was dead, long live the EU!” We received the news that the Star Wars EU would now be considered Legends, and a new EU would start in the fall. This made the Del Rey panel that day a not-to-be missed event. We went out in, well, Force, and listened to the panel with rapt attention. New Star Wars author Kevin Hearne was there. And he had a book signing at the Del Rey booth right after. All in all, a fun eventful day.

Celebration took place August 23 through August 26 in Florida. With temps near 100 and humidity around a million, most of Chicago Force would have wished to be back home, except it was the same weather in Chicago that weekend.
On April 14, 2012 after C2E2, Chicago Force met at the home of Dan McGinn and talked over our great day at C2E2.
June book club was at a special location:
Cyphan at the Westin Chicago North Shore, 601 N. Milwaukee, Wheeling (Milwaukee and Lake Cook).
We met on June 26, 2010 at 1:00 p.m and discussed Crosscurrent by Paul S. Kemp. We had a great time at our panel discussing the book and giving a talk on “How to start and run a book club”.
