Star Wars Reads Day

I’m guessing you like reading—just a hunch, since you are reading a post on a book publisher’s blog. If you also like Star Wars, this post is about to get really fun.

We’ve been working with some of our pals in the publishing industry, those who love Star Wars as much as we do, to put together Star Wars Reads Day. The big day, October 6th, is a chance for fans to come together and celebrate reading and Star Wars.

You can find an event near you with this interactive map. All 1,200+ events planned—from Fairbanks, Alaska to New York City—will have giveaways and a raffle.

Select events will also have authors and/or costumed characters on hand from the 501st Legion, the Rebel Legion, the Mandalorian Mercs and the R2 Builders Club. We’re excited to have two Chronicle Books authors celebrating Star Wars Reads!

In the Chicago Area, meet costumed characters, try your luck at Star Wars origami, and have a book signed by Jeffrey Brown—author of the New York Times Bestseller Darth Vader and Son—at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville.

If you’re near San Francisco, Lara Starr, co-author of Wookiee Pies, Clone Scones, and Other Galactic Goodies, which was recently featured on MTV Geek, will be making Skywalker Sugar Cookies with kids at the Chronicle Books store on Union Street.
