Childrens’ event for local schools. Friday 18 September 2015
9.30am | Public Hall | Free admission
Since their launch in 2004, Jeff Kinney’s fun, laugh-along books have been a firm favourite with young readers. Translated into 45 languages, the nine volumes of Diary of a Wimpy Kid are packed with colourful adventures and experiences. Only middle school weakling Gregg Heffley could end up with a seagull in the family car, pinching his cheesy snacks!
Host Alastair Watson brings the books to life with fun activities including The Wimpy Kid Draw-Along and The Wimp Wars! Quiz. The event also includes exclusive clips of author Jeff Kinney talking about the books, his involvement in the films and how he draws the characters.
Great family entertainment. Suitable for children ages 8+.
