The Deep End Poolside Pick-Up with Jeff Kinney, Bestselling Author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Books

NEWS FLASH!!!!   Titcomb’s Bookshop and the Sandwich Public Library will host bestselling children’s author Jeff Kinney on Sunday, November 8 starting at 10:00am to celebrate the publication of his newest book, "The Deep End: The Diary of a Wimpy Kid #15."  The event will take place at the Oak Ridge School parking lot in East Sandwich.

Tickets are required and are $18 per family group, which includes a signed copy of the book and the opportunity to meet Mr. Kinney during this fun and socially distanced outside curbside event.   Traveling in a wrapped “The Deep End Drive-Thru Pool Party” van, Kinney will personally deliver signed copies of The Deep End using a six-foot pool skimmer. 

BUY TICKETS HERE.

In a time when so many activities are on hold, Kinney is bringing families a fun and silly respite to look forward to.  “2020 hasn’t been fun for kids,” says Kinney. “We’re excited to be throwing a drive-thru event that kids and their families can look forward to. We can’t wait to put on our masks, hit the road, and create happy memories for all the fans we meet along the way.”  

Attendees are welcome to dress up in Halloween costumes and even "Wimpify" their cars with decorations.  We will take a photo of Jeff and each family group in their cars.  Tickets are scheduled every 15 minutes to keep waiting time to a minimum. Attendees will remain in their cars and everyone over the age of 2 must wear a mask throughout the event.

Due to health restrictions, there will be no personalizations at this event, and no books from home can be signed. 

Additional signed books (which make wonderful gifts!) will be available for sale at the event.  You can also order signed copies of Jeff's books our website or at the bookshop after the event.  Quantities may be limited. 

  

About the Book
In The Deep End, Greg Heffley and his family hit the road for a cross-country camping trip, ready for the adventure of a lifetime. But things take an unexpected turn, and they find themselves stranded at an RV park that isn’t exactly a summertime paradise. When the skies open up and the water starts to rise, the Heffleys wonder if they can save their vacation—or if they’re already in too deep.
