May the 4th be with you at Brilliant Books
It’s National Star Wars Day and local bookstore Brilliant Books is going all out to celebrate with games, activities, contests and – of course – books inspired by the world of Star Wars.
“Star Wars Reads Day was a terrific success for encouraging everyone to read by framing it around Star Wars,” said Jodie Brandt, bookseller. “It’s such a well-known and accessible world. We’re glad that we can have another Star Wars party here, they’re a lot of fun.”
Kids’ crafts, activities and games will be available all day. There will be both kids’ and adults’ Costume Contest that runs all day. Contestants can stop in anytime and have their picture taken. Voting for the contest will be on Brilliant Books’ Facebook page.
Local cartoonist Jeff Manley will be in the store in the afternoon doing sketches and promoting his new book, “Drawn From Memory.”
Also new for this Star Wars event is the First Annual Brilliant Books’ Jedi-Level Trivia Championship, featuring cash prizes and a sought after trophy.
