Star Wars Day 2021

Nothing says "Happy Star Wars Day!" like a Baby Origami Yoda, folded last week by Horn Book executive editor Elissa's eight-year-old Jedi-in-training (a.k.a padawan) during the annual Margret & H. A. Rey Curious George Lecture, presented by the Cambridge Public Library, the Curious George Fund, and the Cambridge Public Library Foundation. This year the featured speakers were author/illustrator couple Cece Bell and Tom Angleberger — who still insists, a dozen years later, he'll fold an origami Yoda anytime, anywhere.
