Author E.K. Johnston is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of several YA novels, including the L.A. Time Book Prize finalist The Story of Owen and Star Wars: Ahsoka. Her latest novel, Star Wars Queen’s Peril, is a prequel to the New York Times best-selling novel Queen’s Shadow. When 14-year-old Padmé Naberrie wins the election for queen of Naboo, she adopts the name Amidala and leaves her family. To keep herself safe, she collects a group of skilled handmaidens. When Naboo is invaded by forces of the Trade Federation, Queen Amidala and her handmaidens will face the greatest test – themselves and each other.
Joining in conversation will be actresses Cat Taber and Shelby Young. Cat has stared in several movies, and has lent her voice to many video games, television series, and movies. Most notably, she voiced Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated TV series, and is the narrator for the audio book of Queen's Peril. Shelby, too, has an extensive background in both on-camera and voice over. Notably, she played Princess Leia Organa in the Star Wars: Forces of Destiny animated TV series.
