Star Wars Reads Day is Saturday, October 11. As I have shared many times before, my husband and daughter are big Star Wars fans and my daughter loves reading, so this is a perfect event for our family.
In the Ann Arbor area, there are two main celebrations. The Ann Arbor District Library will have Star Wars Crafts from noon-1p at the Malletts Creek Library. Barnes & Noble Ann Arbor will have a Star Wars Reads Day event as well starting at 11a. They will have two authors of the Star Wars: The Essential Readers Companion followed by a theatrical performance and demonstration of Jedi Fighting techniques.
In addition to the Star Wars Reads Day events, Toys R Us is also having a LEGO Star Wars Rebels event in celebration of the new Star Wars series Star Wars Rebels. The event is from noon-2p.
Last year, my family attended the Star Wars Reads Day event at the Downtown Branch of Ann Arbor District Library where they had numerous activities available. In 2012 we also attended the library event. However, this year the library has scaled back to just crafts and relocated to the Malletts Creek branch. With the library scaling back their activities, we may try Barnes & Noble instead.

My daughter loves reading. Some of her favorite books are the Origami Yoda series of books by Tom Angleberger.
She also loves Jeffrey Brown’s books. Parents and children alike will enjoy Darth Vader & Son and Vader’s Little Princess. My daughter loves these books and so many of my friends who have seen our copies have bought their own version. She also loves his Jedi Academy series of Graphic Novels.
