Last year, Del Rey published the first in a trilogy of novels exploring the origins of fan-favorite Star Wars character Thrawn. Thrawn: Ascendancy – Chaos Rising was the first Star Wars story to be told from the setting of Thrawn’s Chiss homeworld, and it showed Thrawn in a much different light than we’ve seen him previously, as well as giving us an understanding of Thrawn’s people and his place among them.
The second book in the trilogy is called Greater Good, and ReedPop is hosting a virtual book launch event with Hugo award-winning author Timothy Zahn.
Zahn will be in conversation with Del Rey editor Tom Hoeler, and fans who purchase a ticket have the opportunity to submit a question that could possibly be answered during the event. There are two ticket purchasing options available, one that includes a signed bookplate and a hardcover copy of the book itself included with the live stream, and another that just gives access to the live stream.
The Livestream is scheduled for Thursday, April 29 at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET, but the event will also be recorded, and ticketholders will be able to access the playback of the live stream until Thursday, May 6 at 12 a.m. ET.
Tickets for the event can be purchased here on the Metaverse official website.
