The day book lovers and Star Wars geeks all over the galaxy look forward to each year is returning — Star Wars Reads Day will take place this year on October 10! Two new logos have been designed for the event as well — Yoda, as seen above, and BB-8, the droid we’re all anxious to meet when Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres in December (see below). There won’t be any shortage of reading material, thanks to the joint Disney/Lucasfilm publishing event “The Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” making Star Wars Reads Day even more exciting!
Here is the official word from StarWars.com:
On October 10, 2015, bookstores, libraries, and retailers will participate in the fourth annual installment of the global event, featuring signings, parties, and more. Last year, events took place all over the world, and this year Star Wars Reads Day is expected to grow even bigger as fans gear up for the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December. Participants in the events and festivities include: Disney-Lucasfilm Press, Marvel, Abrams, Chronicle, Del Rey, DK, Quirk Books, Scholastic, Workman, Egmont, Studio Fun, Phoenix International Publishing, and many more. BB-8 is ready. Are you?
