We’re proud to announce the third marriage of two of our favorite things, reading and Star Wars. The third annual Star Wars Reads Day will be coming on October 11th and you better start prepping your Jedi robes now. The event had more than 2000 participants last year, and we can expect even more this time around.

Several publishing partners will come together for the festivities, including Disney Publishing Worldwide, Abrams, Chronicle, Dark Horse, Del Rey, DK, Klutz, Quirk Books, Random House Audio, Scholastic and Workman. Also, SW authors join in on the fun, including Jeffrey Brown (author of Star Wars: Jedi Academy and the upcoming Goodnight Darth Vader) and Ian Doescher, who penned William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, and William Shakespeare’s Empire Striketh Back.

Make sure to pay attention to starwars.com/reads and facebook.com/StarWarsReads for updates on the big event.
