The Barnes & Noble store in DeKalb will host a free Halloween Storytime and celebration at 11 a.m. Saturday at 2439 Sycamore Road, DeKalb.

Children ages 2 and older and their parents are invited to a Storytime featuring a reading of Caldecott-winning author and artist Ed Emberley’s story about children who know how to make scary monsters disappear in “Go Away, Big Green Monster.” All children will receive Big Green Monster stickers. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes to the celebration, which will feature treats, activities and a costume parade.

“Halloween is always a fun time for children,” Sarah DiFrancesco, director of business development for Barnes & Noble, said in a news release. “They love to get dressed up, enjoy a treat and good spooky stories. We are thrilled to read ‘Go Away, Big Green Monster’ to children this year. The dramatic die-cut illustrations and sparkly designs make this a Storytime favorite.”

In addition to Storytime, Barnes & Noble located at 2439 Sycamore Road, DeKalb, will offer in-store trick-or-treating.

The Halloween Storytime event is free and open to the public.  For information, call 815-787-3234.
