October 5th-Star Wars Reading Day!
Courtesy of http://starwars.com/reads/ What is Star Wars Reads Day? Star Wars Reads Day is an international event that celebrates reading and Star Wars. It was launched in 2012 by Lucasfilm and its publishing partners--Abrams, Chronicle Books, Dark Horse, Del Rey, DK Publishing, Klutz, Random House Audio, Scholastic, and Workman. This year, we're excited to have Quirk Books participating as well. How can I hold a Star Wars Reads event at my library/bookstore/school? In 2012, we had over 1200 events at schools, libraries and bookstores across America. In 2013, we're changing the rules to make the experience even better. First, this year you don't have to sign up! In 2013, any bookstore, library or school around the world can hold a Star Wars Reads Day event. Put the date (Saturday, October 5th) on your calendar and start planning and promoting an out-of-the-world event. (Schools and school libraries are encouraged to hold their events on Friday, October 4th). As
