Rebel Legion’s Rebel Reads Returns for Second Year on October 16th

  • by

The Rebel Legion’s celebration of all things Star Wars books and comics, Rebel Reads is back for a second year! This free ten hour webathon event will stream on the club’s Facebook and YouTube accounts, starting at 9am PT (4pm GMT) on Saturday, October 16th.

The broadcast will include over ten hours of original video content featuring interviews with Star Wars authors, artists, editors, and audiobook narrators interviewed by members of The Rebel Legion.

Rebel Reads is a video streaming webathon fundraiser to benefit Save The Children in their goal of providing education and other critical aid to children across the world.

This is the third webathon event hosted by The Rebel Legion. This international fan-run organization began hosting webathons in 2020 as a response to club members looking for a way to connect during the pandemic and to provide much-needed support to charity and the community. Fueled by the passionate global membership of The Rebel Legion, these webathons feature Star Wars celebrity & fan interviews along with engaging member submitted content. So far these three webathons have raised well over $35,000 for critical pandemic aid.

This year’s fundraiser for Save The Children can be found here.

We’re also encouraging our members to sew for Sew Powerful, which gives reusable menstrual products to girls in Zambia so they can remain in school all month long.
