Star Wars Reads Celebration Returns in October
Star Wars Reads returns this October! The annual celebration organised by Disney Publishing Worldwide, DK Books, Scholastic, Egmont and Del Rey encourages reading by focusing on Star Wars books and encouraging children and adults to read together. Over October there are events and activities which include author signings, readings and games planned all over the world.
“Over the past five years, the Star Wars Reads campaign has organically grown into an annual event that celebrates reading through the new and familiar stories for families and fans of all ages,” said Jeanne Mosure, senior vice president and group publisher, Disney Publishing Worldwide.
“We are thrilled to continue the momentum in 2016 and invite parents to encourage reading while introducing kids to Star Wars through printed books, graphic novels and digital stories.”
