Geoff Herbach: Author Reading and Discussion

im-with-stupidFelton Reinstein has never been good with stress. Which is why he’s seriously freaking out. Announcing his college choice on national TV? It’s a heart attack waiting to happen. Deciding on a major for the next four years of his life? Ridiculous! He barely even knows who he is anymore without football. And so…he embarks on The Epic Quest to Be Meaningful.

I’m With Stupid is the third and final book in this series by Geoff Herbach. The first was Stupid Fast and the second was Nothing Special, which won the 2013 Minnesota Book Award.

The author will read an excerpt, talk about why he chose to use an athlete as the main character, discuss his inspirations, answer questions from the audience, and sign books.
