Diary of Wimpy Kid in NJ

imgres-4Author Jeff Kinney is taking a book-tour road trip as well. This one makes multiple North Jersey stops on Friday, November 7, turning the public schools’ teacher’s convention vacation days into an extra gift for “Wimpy Kid” fans. Kinney wants to reach as many kids as possible while giving the bookstores a chance to sell more books than they might at a typical signing.

Kinney likes to tell kids about the writing process, his recurring self-doubt, what it took to get the book published and his experiences along the way. He hopes to inspire them to create and show them not to give up or let negative thoughts stop them. Tickets must be purchased in advance and seating is limited.
