You're gonna have to stand in line and admonish your book-reading child to “be patient,” all while you yourself search for your own zen. But the wait will be worth it when your beloved darling walks out clutching his autographed Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days!Yep, best-selling Wimpy Kids series author/illustrator Jeff Kinney is set to sign and chat (well, mostly sign but not personalize!, as more than 1,000 young bibliophies are expected) his latest exclusively at Children's Book World. This is a ticketed event, and you can get yours the day of, beginning at 10 a.m. One ticket per person, and if you simply cannot wait, you can purchase an already-autographed tome.
