Kids from across Atlanta joined Dwight for the newest "Wimpy Kid" movie - "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul" as part of Dwight's 2017 summer reading kickoff.
Shot on location in Atlanta, the new movie features kid/hero Greg Heffley (played by Jason Ian Drucker) and his family as they experience a summer family road trip. Dwight is a huge fan of the "Wimpy Kid" book series created by author, Jeff Kinney, and loved spending time with the cast during their filming in Atlanta. He's excited to showcase the series (and the latest film) and encourage kids to read lots of books this summer.
During the event, kids joined in the Atlanta Hawks' "Check It Out Reading Challenge" which allows them to redeem tickets for 2017-18 Hawks games.
Ten kids were chosen to be "READ Carpet Kids," sharing their thoughts on summer reading - and their favorite book!
