Inkwood Books is excited to bring Jeff Kinney, the wildly popular author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, to Haddonfield Middle School for a socially-distant Drive-Thru event to celebrate his newest book in the series, The Deep End!

The event will take place at the Haddonfield Middle School blacktop area behind the school. Traffic flow information will be emailed to ticket-holders prior to the event.


  • ONE TICKET admits ONE CAR and includes ONE SIGNED COPY of The Deep End.
  • Additional SIGNED copies of The Deep End are available to purchase as add-ons to your ticket. Jeff will personally distribute your copies of The Deep End to you at the event.
  • Additional SIGNED copies of other books in the Wimpy Kid series are available to purchase as add-ons to your ticket and will be distributed by Inkwood staff at the event. (Holidays are coming - signed books make GREAT gifts!) All books will be pre-signed. Due to health restrictions, there will be no personalization at this event, and he cannot sign any books brought from home.
  • Tickets are scheduled every 20 minutes to keep waiting lines and traffic congestion to a minimum. Please arrive as close to your ticketed time as possible.


  • Attendees will remain in your cars and will drive through 2-3 The Deep End -themed stations, ending at a station with Jeff Kinney, who will personally deliver your signed copies of The Deep End to you!
  • A staffer will take a socially distanced photo with Jeff outside your car - you must remain inside your car. Photos will be available for free download after the event.


  • Since this event is the day after Halloween, wear your Halloween costume to the Drive-Thru Pool Party. Children’s books and Wimpy Kid-themed costumes highly encouraged!
  • 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 group with the best-decorated car will win a boxed set of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books!


  • All Attendees MUST remain in your cars at all times.
  • All Attendees over 2-years-old MUST WEAR MASKS when car windows are open, no exceptions.
  • No restroom facilities will be available during the event.

Thank you for your cooperation! It is exciting to navigate this new world of socially distanced events.
