Anderson’s Bookshop, in downtown Naperville, will host a special event with television star Chris Colfer, a Golden Globe-winning actor best known for his role as “Kurt Hummel” on Glee.
Colfer was recently honored as a member of the 2011 TIME 100, Time Magazine‘s annual list of the one hundred most influential people in the world. And now Colfer is an author, with this first venture into the literary world. His book, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, is aimed at middle readers.
Growing up, Colfer performed in community theater productions, and in high school, was active in the drama program. This year, Colfer will be seen in the independent film Struck By Lightning, which he both wrote and produced.
Colfer will be presenting his new book at a signing event at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville on Thurs., July 19 at 7PM. Priority numbers for the booksigning line are available with the purchase of The Land of Stories from Anderson’s Bookshop, 123 W. Jefferson Ave. in downtown Naperville. This event is a booksigning line only where fans will get an opportunity to meet the author.
About the Book
In The Land of Stories, Alex and Conner Bailey’s world is about to change. It’s a fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairy tales.
The Land of Stories tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner. Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, they leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about.
But after a series of encounters with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.
