‘Star Wars’ invading bookstores, libraries
Don’t be surprised if you see Imperial Stormtroopers, Jedi, Rebels or various configurations of R2-D2s on the streets of America on Saturday. They will be enjoying “Star Wars Reads Day” at your local libraries, schools, independent bookstores, Barnes & Nobles and Books-A-Million.
A literacy initiative by Lucasfilm, and publishing houses Random House, Dark Horse Comics, DK, Del Rey, Abrams, Scholastic, and Workman, “Star Wars Reads Day” encourages reading, not only “Star Wars,” but books in general.
“It’s what will get kids reading material they wouldn’t otherwise – or reading types of books that they wouldn’t have otherwise,” said Pablo Hidalgo, author of the new “Star Wars: The Essential Reader’s Companion.”
