Wimps rule – ‘Wimpy Kid’ author Jeff Kinney rolls into Seattle

jeffkinneyA publishing juggernaut rolls into town this week.  Stephen King? James Patterson? “Fifty Shades of Grey” author E.L. James?

If you’re out of the loop, maybe it’s because you haven’t attended any PTA meetings lately. The behemoth is none other than Jeff Kinney, author of the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series.

This phenomenally popular author is the author of a series featuring the adventures/travails of middle schooler Greg Heffley (hey, we’ve all been there). Kinney rolls into town (he has his own bus) to celebrate the publication of the eighth book in the series - “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck.” His publisher claims 100 million “Wimpy Kid” books in print.

Several Kinney appearances are already sold out, according to his publicist. One that isn’t is at 6 p.m. Tuesday (today) at the Elliott Bay Book Co., 1521 10th Ave., Seatttle. Free, though buying the book gets you priority in the signing line; for more information consult the web site at elliottbaybooks.com.  Fun-filled activities begin at 6 p.m. Appearance at 7 p.m.

Kinney’s publicist, Jason Wells, says there’s also room at a Kinney appearance at 7 p.m.Wednesday Nov. 20 at the Issaquah Costco. He recommends folks call ahead to ensure that there’s still room – the store’s number is 425-313-0965.
