Mother Daughter Book Club Meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid

I must be a wimpy mother, because I still haven't figured out what all the fuss is over the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.  But when the promotion bus and author are in town on the 2nd day of the national book tour for the release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth -- you know you better drop everything and GO! 

The Mother Daughter Book Group went in force -- along with several hundred other Arkansans:

They were joined by two of the cutest boys in their class!

Then the main event -- author Jeff Kinney spoke about the genesis of Wimpy, all the years of hard work, and the new movie opening in next spring:

Much to the audience's surprise -- two of the actors from the Wimpy movie joined the fun -- Zach Gordon who plays Greg Heffley and Robert Capron who plays Rowley Jefferson:

The kids were even able to have their photograph taken with them!

Now, I better read them so I know why we spent so much time in line getting our books autographed!

(Keep in mind...I'm a book blogger not a photographer...please excuse my less than stellar photography skills).
