Meet Jeff Kinney author of the beloved Diary of a Wimpy Kid series on his Awesome Friendly Socially-Distanced Adventure Bus Tour!
Jeff Kinney is coming to Northshire Bookstore on a socially-distanced Awesome Friendly Adventure Tour on Monday, August 10th at 1pm! Get a chance to meet Jeff from a distance as he joins us from his Awesome, Friendly Tour Bus by purchasing a ticket that includes a free signed copy of Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Adventure and a photo opportunity.
One ticket will admit one child and one adult companion at the time you select to a special curbside delivery from Jeff. There will be a line with clearly marked 6' spacing outside Northshire Bookstore. Everyone over the age of 2 is required to wear a mask and respect social distancing and guidance from booksellers.
All books will be pre-signed. Due to health restrictions, there will be no personalization at this event, and you may not bring books from home to be signed. Signed copies of Jeff's other books will be available for purchase at check-in.
From the imagination of Rowley Jefferson comes an adventure of epic proportions. Join Roland and his best friend, Garg the Barbarian, as they leave the safety of their village and embark on a quest to save Roland’s mom from the White Warlock. Will our heroes survive? Find out in Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Adventure!
Deeply empathetic to the challenges that families as well as small businesses are facing during the coronavirus health crisis, Kinney was inspired to reimagine the traditional book tour model within social distancing guidelines. Each day a new independent bookstore along the east coast will host a pop-up Awesome Friendly curbside book pick-up event at which Kinney will personally deliver children their signed copies of Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Adventure. Along the tour route, Kinney will surprise real Awesome Friendly children of essential workers and children who have otherwise been affected by COVID-19 with signed books and Wimpy Kid prizes.
