MONTCLAIR, NJ — Watchung Booksellers is excited to bring back “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” author Jeff Kinney to celebrate “Big Shot” his latest book in the series. Kinney will appear in a drive-thru sports-themed party on Saturday, November 6 from 1-3 pm at the George Inness Annex (MHS Freshman Building) parking lot on North Fullerton just north of Chestnut Ave.

In the Big Shot Drive-Thru Tour, families will drive through sports-themed interactive vignettes, followed by the final moment when Kinney will personally deliver children their signed copy of Big Shot. Grab the whole family and Wimpify your car with Diary decor–the best-decorated car will win a boxed set of Awesome Friendly books.
