Watchung Booksellers is thrilled to host global bestselling author Jeff Kinney, creator of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, as he launches his newest book Rowley Jefferson’s. Awesome Friendly Adventure, on Tuesday, August 4th from 4:00-6:00 pm.

In this one-of-a-kind socially-distant author visit, Kinney will kick off his tour in a wrapped “Awesome Friendly Adventure” van outside the bookstore.

Kinney will personally hand out pre-signed copies in front of the store and welcome photo ops. Timed tickets must be purchased in advance at and attendees must remain socially distant.

Deeply empathetic to the challenges presented during the coronavirus health crisis, Kinney also plans to surprise several children of essential workers and children who have otherwise been affected by COVID-19 with signed books and Wimpy Kid prizes.

“Even though this tour is much different, I can’t wait to connect with my fans and meet real Awesome Friendly kids along the way,” said Kinney. “I hope the tour will bring readers some much-needed celebration and positivity.”

Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Adventure is the follow-up to Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, which was published in April 2019. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has sold more than 250 million copies globally.
