At 7 p.m. tonight, July 24, in Petaluma will host Golden Globe-winning actor Chris Colfer, known for portraying Kurt Hummel on the hit Fox series “Glee."
The 22-year-old star from the Fresno suburb of Clovis will be in town to promote his first book, a children's novel called The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, one of 12 stops on his book tour.
He's also set to appear July 25 at Books Inc., at 601 Van Ness Ave. in San Francisco. Tickets for that event are $16.
Primarily targeted for children ages 8 and up, “The Land of Stories” follows twins Alex and Connor as they disappear into a magical book and come face-to-face with many familiar fairytale characters they grew up reading.
Living in an era where the renaissance of fairytales is to glamorize and modernize the stories, Alex and Connor explore the Land of Stories that contains the intended values and lessons the original fairytales had to offer.
However, when the twins run into difficulties in returning to the real world, they soon realize that, that task alone is sure to be a challenge.
The Petaluma event is set to start at 7 p.m. While Colfer will be available for signing copies of his book, Copperfield’s wants to remind fans that no personalizations will be made and a maximum of three books per person will be autographed. In other words, refrain from asking Colfer to sign your memorabilia. Posed photos with Colfer are also not permitted.
