Star Wars Reads Day 2020

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... I fell in love with Star Wars. I need Star Wars and the Expanded Universe (I will never call it Legends, Disney, you can't make me!) as the flower needs the sun. So you can imagine my absolute joy, when I learned after getting my job at LPL that we hosted a Star Wars Reads Day party every year. Not only do I get to geek out about Star Wars to anyone who will listen, but I get to share my love of Ewoks and lightsabers and Mara Jade with other Star Wars nerds. This year is no exception. No, we won't be able to have LPL's auditorium full of crafts and Yoda soda and pod racing. But we'll all be able to chat wampas and kyber crystals and duologies in the Force online this year. We've got crafts, an escape room, a chance to chat with a Star Wars cosplayer, cool LEGO builds by KC Brick Lab, a virtual costume contest, a draw along, and we're capping off the day of virtual fun with trivia.
