Event Announcement: Jeff Kinney is coming to Bath!

Yaaaay! Now THIS I was seriously excited about, until I realised I'm away in London on December 3rd so I'm not going to make the event, ahhh. However, I wholeheartedly recommend all of you guys head down to my lovely city of Bath and check this event out as I know it's going to be awesome!

The Bath Festival of Children’s Literature are proud to present Jeff Kinney, the American author of the hugely popular book, and film, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, in a one-off, special event at the Pavilion in Bath on 3 December 2011 at 2pm.

To celebrate the launch of his new book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever, Jeff will be revealing his top secrets to becoming a best selling author, his inspiration behind the series, and audience members will get the chance to see his very first written concepts and drawings of Wimpy Kid.

This event will be the best chance to find out how Jeff creates the jokes for the books and how the characters made the transition from page to screen! A thorough Q&A session will follow the event for all those with a burning question.

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series chronicles the adventures of wise-cracking pre-teen Greg Heffley who must somehow survive the scariest time of anyone’s life, middle school. Aided by best friend Rowley, Greg must put up with a highly dysfunctional family as he embarks on a journey of survival. Written in journal style and filled with hand written notes and simple drawings of Greg’s daily adventures, Jeff Kinney’s books have been hugely popular the world over.

Tickets are available from Saturday 15th October and can be booked by telephone 01225 463362, online at www.bathkidslitfest.org.uk or in person at Bath Box Office, 2 Church Street, Abbey Green, Bath BA1 1NL
