Rowley’s Spooky Drive-Thru Tour featuring author Jeff Kinney

Boulder Book Store is proud to host Jeff Kinney for Rowley’s Spooky Drive-Thru Tour, on Wednesday, March 17th starting at 6:30pm at Naropa University's Nalanda Campus (6287 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder, CO). Tickets are $14.99 per car, and include a pre-signed copy of Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories! Tickets are available on Eventbrite HERE or by clicking the button below.

About the Event:
Jeff Kinney (author of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" books) and his publisher ABRAMS have engineered a socially distanced and hair-raisingly innovative tour like no other: a scare-yourself-silly themed drive-thru event that brings Rowley’s spooky stories to life.

Traveling in a wrapped “Rowley’s Spooky Drive-Thru Tour” van, Kinney will be in Boulder, partnered with Boulder Book Store, to host a drive-thru event following COVID-19 guidelines.

Families will drive through and follow beloved characters Rowley and Greg as they explore spooky Snake Road; encounter spiders, zombies, and bats; and reach the final moment when Kinney will personally deliver children their signed copies of Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories from the grave using a six-foot cemetery shovel.

*Grab the whole family and Wimpify or Spookify your car so it’s ready to roll through Rowley’s Spooky Drive-Thru! Decorations and signs are highly encouraged.
