Note: This post was originally published in July of 2013. The events and dates listed below are reflective of the tour Colfer did in the summer of 2013, not 2015 as the January 18 2015 publish date suggests. EW apologizes for the confusion.
Chris Colfer has been on sold-out arena tours before, but come July, he’ll be embarking on a different kind of tour altogether. To promote his upcoming children’s book The Land of Stories (July 17), he’ll be giving book signings across the country, mostly in the New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco areas, as well as in Kurt Hummel’s home state of Ohio.
Described as a “modern-day fairy tale,” the book will focus on twins Alex and Conner, who leave the real world behind and find themselves in a land where they come face-to-face with the fairy-tale characters — witches, goblins, trolls — they’ve always read about.
See if Colfer is coming to a bookstore near you!
