Saturday is Star Wars Reads day

Paula shared her story yesterday, but Star Wars Reads day is coming up this Saturday! You can find a location near you on the event map. Want to know if any authors or artists be appearing near you? Del Rey, DK and Dark Horse have posted lists of those participating.

If you can’t make it, several authors will be answering fan questions on GoodReads tomorrow. And StarWars.com has been posting video as well.

And, now for something completely different: Tor’s Ryan Britte wonders if the citizens of the Star Wars galaxy illiterate.

Chris Alexander wrote a great piece on the Star Wars Blog about how he got through waiting to see Star Wars by reading the novelization. And it took me back to my own similar experience.

Sit back, kids, and listen to an Old Fart Star Wars fan talk about life in the good ol’ days of 1977 and 1978.

Star Wars Reads. Start planning for October 6th now, as StarWars.com has posted a location map for events through the U.S. A few authors have posted where they’ll be appearing already: Troy Denning, Dan Wallace and John Jackson Miller will be in Roseville, MN, while Pablo Hidalgo and Haden Blackman will appear in Corte Madera, CA, along with Aaron Allston, Drew Karpyshyn and Alexander Freed in Austin, TX. I suspect we’ll be hearing about more of these as the date approaches!

Comics. Skuldren from Roqoo Depot taped the ‘One Writer’s Approach to Star Wars’ panel at Celebration.

Detectiving! In all the hussle and bussle of live-tweeting Celebration, there’s not always time go back and find your sources. Thankfully, Pete did a little digging to find Paul Kemp’s tweet about his mystery duology.
