Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book Signing Event

This afternoon we had a huge treat - we attended a presentation and book signing by author Jeff Kinney, who was talking about his latest bestselling book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Strawwhich Madison read in 2 days. It was fascinating to learn how he came up with the original concept for this series of books, how many times he was rejected, and finally how he overcame many obstacles to become an author who's works have now been published in 30 languages! We also learned a little about the new book due out this fall. Madison was really excited to meet Mr. Kinney! His other books include, Diary of a Wimpy Kidas well as Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rulesand finally Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book.

Thankfully we were number 40 in the signing line, ahead of hundreds of others. The biggest treat of all is that it's a balmy 55 degrees here today and the arctic snowpack is finally melting. YEAH!
