Books and Crannies to Host Big Shot Drive-Thru Tour

Books and Crannies, in Uptown Martinsville, will be hosting Big Shot Drive-Thru Tour on Thursday, November 4th. If your kids, grandkids, nieces, or nephews are fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, do not miss this opportunity for them to meet the author, receive an autographed book, and possibly win a grand prize!

Jeff Kinney’s Big Shot Drive-Thru Tour is an innovative, family-friendly outdoor event themed around Diary of a Wimpy Kid #16: Big Shot. Load up your whole family and join a veritable conga line of cars for a pandemic safe meet-the-author experience like no other. The Big Shot Drive-Thru Tour events bring the world of Wimpy Kid to life directly to fans. From the comfort and safety of their own vehicle, families will drive through the sports-themed event experience following beloved characters Greg and Rowley explore Field Day, shoot and score, and strive for the gold, all before reaching the finish line where Jeff Kinney personally delivers children their signed copies of Big Shot. It’s a home run!
