SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Are you ready for the weekend? Here are some fun ideas from our partners at Hoodline - the hyper local neighborhood website to find weekend activities in and around the Bay Area.

Star Wars "The Last Jedi Art Book" signing

Listen up Star Wars Fans - to coincide with the release of the latest movie, "The Last Jedi Art Book" is coming out! And you can get it signed by the artists this weekend in San Francisco.

The author and artists will be on hand at Sketchpad Galleries... located on 6th street between mission and market.
They'll sign copies and meet fans!

Meet author Phil Szostak along with concept artists James Clyne, Aaron McBride, and Christian Alzmann.

It's free to attend from 2 to 4 p.m. but you'll need to buy a book if you want to get it signed!

P.S. It's also a great Christmas idea for the Star Wars fan in your life!
