Event Recap: Jeff Kinney Author Visit

Jeff_greg-620x620The Mission Viejo Library hosts many awesome events and book signings. Last year, I went to a book signing with the author Jeff Kinney.

Jeff Kinney visited Mission Viejo to debut Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck. This is the eighth book in the wildly popular series. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck is about a middle school kid named Greg Heffley, who has lately been running into some bad luck. His challenges in middle school are hard to solve, so an unsure Greg turns to a Magic 8 Ball for help. Will this solve all of his problems, or only make his troubles worse? Find out about the ups and downs of Greg’s life in Jeff Kinney’s newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book.

At the event, instead of running into “hard luck,” I came across good luck. I had the fantastic opportunity to ask Jeff Kinney a few questions. Read below to find out his answers and see if you have the same favorites as he does.

Q: What is your favorite Diary of a Wimpy Kid book?

A: Right now “Hard Luck,” because it’s stuck in my head, but my all time favorite is the first book.

Q: What’s your favorite Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie?

A: The first one.

Q: Which character are you the most like?

A: The bad side of me is most like Greg.

It was amazing to have the chance to meet and interview one of my favorite authors. At the event, they also had hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid games and fortunes. It was a blast!
