Betcha didn't know that tomorrow, October 6 is National Star Wars Reads Day and all the Barnes & Noble bookstores in Chicago are doing stuff Yoda style. The little ones will enjoy a story time followed by event activities such as coloring, Star Wars Mad Libs and card making with glitter. As an added bonus, some of Star Wars' favorite costumed characters will be present to take photos with their fans (big and small). Kids will receive themed prizes to take home including stickers, tattoos, bookmarks and pins. But make sure to call ahead, as times and costumed characters vary.
