Jeff Kinney is a Rock Star!

November 14, 2012

from Holy Cross librarian, Mrs. Anderson –

Aerosmith may be in town, and my nephew may have sold a hat to Steven Tyler at Nordstrom, but Jeff Kinney is the real rock star!

Touring the United States in his personalized Wimpy Kid bus, Jeff Kinney made a couple of stops in Kansas City this week. Author and illustrator of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Kinney is no stranger to large crowds of kids as evidenced at Unity Temple and at the Reading Reptile bookstore on Tuesday.

The air was thick with excitement as hundreds of children patiently waited in line for an autograph and a chance to meet one of their favorite authors.  There are over 75 million copies of the Wimpy Kid books in print and the series has been published in over 40 different languages, so guess who was in line to meet the author?  Yes, well anyone that can sell that many books and get millions of children to read is a true rock star in my book.

To learn more about Jeff Kinney and his book series, visit the Wimpy Kid website, and if you’d like my autographed copy of the new book, look for it in the silent auction at Celebration!
