Today’s reading is provided by Tom Angleberger, childrens’ and young adult author, origamist, and Star Wars-true believer. Some time back, Tom was approached by LucasFilm to write his version of a Star Wars movie and, as luck would have it, they were both thinking Return of the Jedi. Tom composed the literary version of this story with not only enormous amounts of fun, but also with painstaking detail and faithfulness to George Lucas’ original vision from 1983.
Enjoy Tom Angleberger reading from his version of Star Wars Episode VI titled Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side.
(We’re sending a shout out to Laini Bostian for assistance in getting Tom on our show – many thanks!)
