Have you ever thought about building your own R2-D2? Or perhaps one of the many other droids in the Star Wars universe? Many others have - astromech building is an amazing hobby! You can learn more about it on Saturday, May 4th, as part of Free Comic Book Day + Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You!
Astromech builder Cole Horton and his R2 unit, R2-M5, a droid in the Royal Naboo Security Force, will be at the library from 10 am – 3 pm. Mr. Horton will lead a presentation from 11 am – 12 pm on building astromechs; if you’ve ever dreamed of building your own R2 unit, make sure to attend this free event! Take a picture with R2-M5 and ask questions about what it takes to build a droid. Throughout the day, we’ll also have a variety of Star Wars crafts for all ages, including Star Wars origami and paper bag puppets.
This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Puyallup Public Library and Fantasium Comics (1500 South 336th Street, Suite 12A, Federal Way, WA 98003).
