Books on Film: Diary of a Wimpy Kid Turns 15!
What were you doing in 2007?
I was just starting a new school library job when I started hearing about a new illustrated book that kids were into. Very into.
2022 marks the 15th anniversary of Diary of a Wimpy Kid (can you believe it?), and PBS News Hour had author Jeff Kinney on to talk all about it.
Kinney talks about his comic strip beginnings, his inspirations for Wimpy Kid, and what drives him to make each installment as good as it can be.
