Calling all Jedis! While the Empire would most likely be displeased, Star Wars Reads Day — a celebration of a galaxy far, far away and the joy of reading — is back at Seven Stories on Saturday 10 October 2015 (10am - 5pm)

We will be hosting some great themed activities in their Bookshop, so band together with Members of the Rebel Alliance and bring the force for this interstellar event! Come dressed in your best Star Wars costume for a chance to win some cool prizes, grab a Star Wars goodie bag and don’t forget to have your photo taken with R2D2.

Celebrating all things Star Wars, including the imminent theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December. Get your lightsabers at the ready and we’ll see you there!

Here is the official word from StarWars.com: “On October 10, 2015, bookstores, libraries, and retailers will participate in the fourth annual instalment of the global event. 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. BB-8 is ready. Are you?”
