The Force of a Story in Parts: Star Wars, Fandom, and Seriality
Presenter: Anne Moore
Time: May 4, 7:00pm
Place: Brooks Memorial Library (in person)
From Dickens to Game of Thrones, stories told in piecemeal style have shown their power to command a reader’s attention. In this apt talk for “Star Wars Day,” author Anne Moore examines how Star Wars’ serialized structure encourages readers to fill the gaps between installments with their own imaginative play.
Anne Moore is the author of After the Break: Serials, Fandom, and the Feeling of Reading, slated for publication by MacFarland Press in 2022.
