On Saturday Oct 5th 2013 the Barnes and Noble in Warrick, Rhode Island hosted the second annual Star Wars Reads and Bleeds event. This event was part of a string of nation wide events held in various towns/cities throughout the country to help promote reading and the event also included a blood drive which made it unique. The host of this event was Star Wars author and Rhode Island native Ryder Windham. Ryder is an advocated of donating blood which is why this event was dubbed Star Wars Reads and Bleeds Day 2. Members of the 501st and Rebel Legion were on hand to help out with the event. The event featured activities for the kids such as readings, coloring, presentations, and Mr. Windham book signing.
Overall this was a great experience and it was fun seeing Mr. Windham again and catching up. Definitely looking for to more Star Wars Reads and Bleeds events.
