Star Wars Reads Day

We can't wait for OCTOBER 5.  It's the 2nd annual Star Wars Reads Day, a nationwide celebration of literacy and the galaxy far, far away.  Last year there were over 1,200 Star Wars Reads Day events across North America.  According to the official website, the only SWRD event in the Birmingham area is going to be hosted by Little Professor Bookstore, and held here at Homewood Public Library!

I like this quote by Carol Roeder, Director of Publishing at Lucasfilm:  "Reading and Star Wars have gone hand-in-hand since 1976, when the novelization of the original Star Wars movie was released.  Over the years, many fans have discovered the joy in reading through Star Wars books, and we hope to continue encouraging more people to read."
