Book Signing: Before Tomorrowland (Jensen & Case)
Last Saturday I was able to attend a fun book signing event at Disneyland. It is always a treat to have the authors sign their book. It was uber cool to have this particular book signing in Tomorrowland at Disneyland.
Jeff Jensen, and Jonathan Case co-write the book, Before Tomorrowland. Jensen is a senior writer for Entertainment Weekly and Case is an established illustrator. Their book is first, simply beautiful. It's one of those hard cover books that you will want for your Disney books collection. Don't get the e-book version or you'll miss out on the comic book portion in the back of the book. You will enjoy the artwork that Case did for this book.
I personally don't think that Before Tomorrowland is not meant to be a prequel to the movie, Tomorrowland. You can get some of the back story of Plus Utlra which is briefly mentioned in the movie, but that is about it. The book is really a science fiction and fantasy book with references to historical events and people.
The event was well organized and attended. You can always find out what Disney Parks Merch events (Disneyland or WDW) are on the calendar HERE. My friend who came with me was a big Jeff Jensen fan (from the LOST vlog) so he was excited. Both Jensen and Case were very kind and friendly to take the time to personalize our books. I had them sign one for my husband, MacSparky, who is anxious to read the book, too. I have barely started and look forward to finishing the book this summer.
Thanks to Disney Parks Merchandise for a great event. Thanks, Jeff and Jonathan for taking time out to meet and great at Disneyland's Tomorrowland. I can't wait to take the journey.
