Yes, it’s true, the infamous author of the Wimpy Kid books was in our fair city!  The Carnegie Music Hall was near capacity with all of his excited readers.  He told us that the first book will be coming out as a movie in April 2010, and he showed us a video clip–we were the first audience to witness this!

Plus, CLP’s mascot, the Library Card, made an appearance!  Can you guess who it is?  Hint:  she works in the Children’s Dept., Oakland.

This program was presented by Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures in partnership with Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.  Two more programs are yet to be presented this season:  Sharon Flake on Saturday, February 6 and Kadir Nelson on Saturday, February 27.
