Star Wars Reads Day is coming next Monday on October 10th!
The celebration is in it’s fifth year and this year there’s a month long push of storytelling events and activities, including author signings, readings, and games planned for bookstores, libraries, and schools across the globe.
In a statement published on StarWars.com, Jeanne Mosure, senior vice president and group publisher, Disney Publishing Worldwide, had the following to say about the event:
“Over the past five years, the Star Wars Reads campaign has organically grown into an annual event that celebrates reading through the new and familiar stories for families and fans of all ages. We’re thrilled to continue the momentum in 2016 and invite parents to encourage reading while introducing kids to Star Wars through printed books, graphic novels, and digital stories.”
