On Saturday, October 6th, members of the 501st Legion – New England Garrison and Rebel Legion – Alderaan Base spread out all over the five New England states we cover to support this nationwide event. DK Publishing sponsored events like this in libraries and book stores all over the country to try and introduce more kids to the wonders that reading a book can provide them. While at the Rochambeau Library in Providence, RI troopers came out to support Star Wars author Ryder Windham, who was on-hand to discuss Star Wars with other fans. In addition to the reading event Ryder was also there to help the Rhode Island Blood Center, who came out with their mobile donation center to collect blood from willing donors.
