American Library Association Convention

Interesting the things that come up for Artoo and I to do!  This one popped in at the last second from fellow builder Cole Horton.  A publisher needed R2 to appear in a stage presentation at the Seattle Convention Center- what a hoot this was!

The picture above was during the presentation with Tom Angleberger who wrote "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda".  Now I had never heard of this book, but if your about 10 years old I guess it is a huge best seller.

Tom was a great guy, loved working with Artoo and we had a blast onstage entertaining Librarians from all across the country.  He has a new book coming out soon, "Art2-D2's Guide to Folding & Doodling"

All in all we had a lot of fun seeing how Librarians fell for R2, getting our pictures taken and just plain messing about.  The Seattle Conventon Center staff & all the people from ALA were just great to work with.  We hope to return!
