Dear Rebel Legion members,

Legion Command is excited to announce that we will again be hosting Rebel Reads - a Star Wars Reads webathon event this October! Rebel Reads was first held last year, and is a celebration of all the books and comics of both Legends and Disney era alike.

Like Rebelthon, this will also be a fundraising event, with two charity projects to be announced soon. One will require our clubs’ exceptional sewing skills, and be a competition between Bases, so get your machines ready to go!

We are again asking membership to provide us with video content! This year we would like to shift to more dynamic and engaging content, so we’re announcing this early to give everyone more time! Some ideas are:

• Dramatizations in-costume of book scenes or picture books. We will no longer be using simple reading a book in costume videos.
• Book trailers
• Short (less than 5 minutes) in-costume demos from Star Wars DIY books (science, cooking, crafts etc.)
• Quick demos of your own craft projects involving book/comic characters
• In-costume 30 second book reviews or "why I love this book/comic character"
• Detachment-led compilation showing off book/comic character costumes
• Short tutorials for book/comic character costumes
• Short “pass-the-book” or “pass-the-library-card” compilations (less than a minute for Bases/Outposts, a bit longer is fine for Detachments)
• Short (less than 20 seconds) “thank you for donating” videos. More info forthcoming.
• Anything else that fits the theme of literacy and education.

If you would like to discuss a submission idea with us please send the team an email at RebelReadsRL@gmail.com.

The suggested types of member participation videos are open to the other major Star Wars costume clubs as well. These clubs are: Saber Guild, Mandalorian Mercs, Dark Empire, Droid Builders, and the 501st Legion. Saber Guild members are especially encouraged to submit performance videos featuring book/comic characters.

Interested in helping with this event? All members are encouraged to participate, but we would especially like to have input from our members who are librarians, educators, or other relevant professionals. For those interested, please send an email to RebelReadsRL@gmail.com. We are seeking volunteers for:

• Video editing
• Video captioning (subtitles)
• Translation and/or interviewing in another language (particularly Japanese and Spanish!)
• Graphic Design

We are also looking for a small number of members who are both extremely passionate about Star Wars books/comics and have some form of interview or public speaking experience to interview Star Wars book/comic guests. Please provide a list of guests you’d be interested in, and some sample questions for each of them.

As soon as the event schedule is confirmed we’ll let you know here, as well as communicate any key submission date cut-offs and further information about the webathon event. Until then, think about video ideas, and keep reading Rebels!
