THE FORCE OF READING IS STRONG //

Awaken the force of reading with Star Wars Reads - a day for fans and families like no other, and one that you don't want to miss.

There are events happening across New Zealand on Saturday, October 14, and across Australia on Saturday, October 21.

Participating bookstores and libraries will host special activities and costume competitions for young fans from 11.00 am - 3.00 pm.

As excitement builds for the global theatrical release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on December 14, fans of all ages can celebrate the joys of reading and some of the most loved stories from the Star Wars universe.

Since the first Star Wars Reads event in 2012, fans have taken part in worldwide events and activities at bookstores, libraries, and schools.

In Australia, there will be a nationwide simultaneous reading of Star Wars: Legends of Luke Skywalker teaser chapter at 1.30pm. At the Dymocks Melbourne (Collins St) and Dymocks Brisbane stores there will also be appearances by Star Wars fan groups, giving perfect photo opportunities for little Jedi, Sith, stormtroopers, Rebel or Resistance soldier.

Below, you’ll be able to find a Star Wars Reads event happening in your local area. Be sure to contact the bookstore or library for more details.

You can also share some great story moments from across the galaxy at home. Get your hands on Star Wars books and comics, download the printable activity kit that kids will love or host your very own Star Wars Reads event using the celebration kit to decorate.

There's also these eye-catching posters you can print or email.
