The Vermont Lake Monsters are once again holding their Star Wars Night at Centennial Field! The event kicks off tonight at 6pm. Stop by to meet members of the 501st Legion’s New England Garrison and Green Mountain Squad. The game will feature themed music, fireworks, and quite a bit more.
The team will also be auctioning off some commemorative jerseys that the players will be wearing during the game.
Pat Esden has a new book out: Reach For You, the final book in her recent Dark Heart trilogy. She’ll be celebrating its release with a talk and book signing today at Barnes and Noble in South Burlington. The event will kick off at 2pm.
If you’re remotely interested in technology, do yourself a favor and stop by Northfield tonight: P.W. Singer will be giving a talk at Norwich University called NextTech: The Future of Technology, Security, and Threats. The talk will take place at 7:00PM, and will be followed by a book signing with Singer and his co-author, August Cole.
Peter Warren Singer is Strategist at New America and an editor at Popular Science magazine. He has been named by the Smithsonian as one of the nation’s 100 leading innovators; by Defense News as one of the 100 most influential people in defense issues; by Foreign Policy to their Top 100 Global Thinkers List; and by Onalytica social media data analysis as one of the ten most influential voices in the world on cybersecurity and 25th most influential in the field of robotics.
Along with Cole, Singer wrote the 2015 novel Ghost Fleet, a book that depicts a World War III scenario between China, Russia, and the United States, and which examines how technology plays a role. It’s a fantastic novel, and I’d highly recommend it.
If you can’t make the lecture tonight, it will be streamed online.
Killer Rabbit Games opened a year ago, but for its second year, it’ll be relocating to South Burlington’s Blue Mall.
The store’s owners note that their lease is up and have to relocate. The store will now be found in the Blue Mall, have started a GoFundMe page to help offset moving expenses, and are looking to raise $1000 (as of now, they’ve raised about half of that). Perks for the campaign will translate into some merchandise and discounts:
Our move will also mark our 1 year anniversary! We wanted to offer some great savings as a special thank you to all of our amazing customers who can help us out with their donations. Please help us keep the comic book culture and gaming community thriving and receive some amazing savings in the process.
The store will be open in July, and will reopen in mid-to-late August.
