Star Wars Reads Day featuring author Tom Angleberger!
October 6, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Saturday, October 6th | 11 AM – 3 PM | The Augusta Library
Young Padawans, Jedi Masters, and Sith Lords are invited to take a trip to “a galaxy far, far away” during the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System’s free annual Star Wars Reads Day!
This year we are delighted to have writer and Star Wars superfan Tom Angleberger as our guest of honor. He is the bestselling author of numerous children’s and young adult novels, including the Origami Yoda series and most recently, The Mighty Chewbacca in the Forest of Fear! Angleberger wants to let fans know that he is excited to “put on a show for fellow Star Wars fans, and it’s going to end with a possibly record-setting crowd-folding of Origami Yodas!”
The first 30 families in attendance will receive a free copy of one of guest of honor’s Star Wars-themed titles. The Mighty Chewbacca in the Forest of Fear and books from the Origami Yoda series will also be available for purchase at the event courtesy of the Book Tavern.
Other highlights include book giveaways for the first 300 children and youth attendees, Star Wars-themed story time, arts and crafts, Star Wars music played by the Richmond County Orchestra Program, trivia contests, and an artists’ alley and silent auction.
