Search for Your Next Book

No one knows how to have fun more than Jeff Kinney, and he's bringing the fun to Plainville with a THE DEEP END Drive-Thru Pool Party! Families will arrive at the event site at pre-assigned times and will drive through several spectacular and interactive pool party-themed stations that culminate with Jeff personally delivering your family’s signed copy of The Deep End and taking a socially-distanced photo with you! The pandemic can't stop the Wimpy Kid!

Tickets include a signed copy of THE DEEP END, and admission for one car.

  • The event will take place at An Unlikely Story overflow parking lot diagonally across from the bookstore on Saturday evening, November 7, 2020, beginning at 5 p.m.
    • Customers must have a ticket to attend. Each ticket provides entrance to the event for one car and a signed copy of the new Wimpy Kid book, The Deep End, delivered to your car by Jeff Kinney. One ticket admits one car.
    • If you want other signed Wimpy Kid books, they will be available for sale at the bookstore rear entrance.
    • You will receive a map with the exact location to the Drive-Thru, with instructions on where to enter with your ticket confirmation.


    • Grab the whole family and Wimpify your car so it’s ready to roll through the Drive-Thru Pool Party! Decorations and signs are highly encouraged. The family with the best-decorated car will win a boxed set of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.
    • Jeff is happy to take socially distanced photos with fans. A staffer will take photos of each family with Jeff. During the photo, families must remain inside their car and Jeff will remain outside. The photos will be available on Eventer after the event. Details on how to download the photos will be provided on a bookmark to each customer at check-in.
    • We will have a sales table with signed copies of all Jeff Kinney titles, along with exclusive Wimpy Kid merchandise including puzzles, tote bags, and more! You can also pay for additional items and pick them up at the bookstore either before or after the event.


    • All books will be pre-signed. Due to health restrictions, there will be no books signed from home.
    • Attendees 2 years and older must wear a mask.
    • All attendees must stay in their car at all times during the event, no exceptions.
