3rd Annual Star Wars Reads Day Returns On October 11!

Star Wars Reads Day
Star Wars book section at Strand Bookstore
Strand Bookstore, NYC.

Finding the bookstore section or library shelf that contains Star Wars books is one of my favorite things to do. Last month, I stopped by Strand Bookstore and took a snapshot of the shelves there. I also walked out with a few copies I have been meaning to get for myself, specifically Kenobi by John Jackson Miller. (I know, I know. I am so behind on my readings list.) Although I have not read many of them, just seeing the various novels and guides brings a smile to my face.

To help celebrate the literature behind Star Wars, the third annual Star Wars Reads Day will return on October 11, 2014. Bookstores and libraries at major locations will host a range of events with appearances by several Star Wars authors, including Jason Fry (LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary: Updated and Expanded, Star Wars in 100 Scenes), Daniel Lipkowitz (LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles), John Jackson Miller (Star Wars: Kenobi),  Ryder Windham (Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide, Star Wars Rebels Junior Novel), and many more.

Last year, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jason Fry. We talked about Captain Rex, his Jupiter Pirates series, Star Wars Rebels, and much more. Who knows what might happen this time around? Speaking of Rebels, there could be promotional material for the new animated series, since it is set to debut in the fall. Ryder Windham’s novel, entitled Star Wars Rebels: Ezra’s Gamble, and other Rebels books in the works (check out Rebels Report for more information) may be heavily featured during these events to entice readers and passersby to watch the show.

Looking forward to sharing and participating in another Star Wars Reads Day with other fans!

  1. I can’t wait to finally have an opportunity to get to actually plan or go to one of these this year! My friend is doing one at her library, but I think we need one in my county.

    • Good luck in coming up with a plan for your area! Document everything and then write up a post on Lore Keepers. Sadly, I realized a few days ago that NYCC is the same weekend, so I may not be able to participate in any of the local events. We’ll have to see!

      • I’m going to go to the one at the city library before work. But I’m putting a plan together for what I would do to present at my interview Friday.
