So the truth about #OperationBlueMilk has been revealed…
I’m really excited to be a part of Star Wars From A Certain Point Of View which was announced today on starwars.com.
It’s a very special book that celebrates Star Wars‘ 40th Anniversary by taking forty scenes from the original film and retelling them from the point of view of a secondary or background character.
Forty years. Forty scenes. Forty writers.
It’s also going to be a Force for good. The coolest thing about the book is this:
All participating authors have generously forgone any compensation for their stories. Instead, their proceeds will be donated to First Book — a leading nonprofit that provides new books, learning materials, and other essentials to educators and organizations serving children in need. To further celebrate the launch of this book and both companies’ longstanding relationships with First Book, Penguin Random House has donated $100,000 to First Book, and Disney/Lucasfilm has donated 100,000 children’s books — valued at 1 million dollars — to support First Book and their mission of providing educational resources to children in need. Over the past 16 years, Disney has donated more than 57 million books to First Book.
I’m so pleased to be a part of this. As for whose story I’m telling, well, you’ll have to wait and see…
