Greg Gutfeld book tour

So my two teens at home ruined their perfect attendance with a quick visit to our local Barnes & Noble. The event? A book signing by Greg Gutfeld. In case you don’t know of Greg (the girls’ teachers didn’t when they mentioned him to them), he’s a writer/news figure on Fox News. We love watching him on “The Five” (I almost always listen to it as I make dinner), as well as occasional appearances on The O’Reilly Report.

We arrived 30 minutes early, and there were already about 100 people in line. I ponyed up for books for each of the girls, as well as one for a friend, and we got into line. There were rules: no photos (his staff took photos, which I can apparently access later online), no personalized autographs, and books must be opened to a specific page. The no-photos rule wasn’t strictly enforced, and many (I being one of them) did take photos. I think the idea behind all these rules was speed. Indeed, Gutfeld’s next appearance was scheduled for 3 hours after ours, and I think it would take him at least 3 hours to reach the destination.

He was promoting his new book, How To Be Right: The Art of Being Persuasively Correct. He arrived right on time, walking quickly to his signing spot and greeting all of us, thanking us for coming.

Then he began signing — very quickly. Within 10 minutes, he was signing our books and chatting very briefly with each of us.

He seemed very friendly (and seriously, I would expect this — I would love to be the author sitting there with 300 people waiting for their 10 seconds with me. But among the several signings I’ve attended, there have been a few authors who acted put out with the whole situation). And yes, he is short — 5’5″. Since he was sitting, though, this was only evident as he walked in.

I had a great time at the signing, as did the girls. I’ll review his book after I read it. If you aren’t familiar with Gutfeld, try out his show or one of his books. What I love about him is his intelligence and dry humor.

  1. wow, this book signing looks awesome. Praying for the day when I have a book signing that looks half as awesome.

  2. Yay! Mission accomplished at the book signing. Your pictures are awesome and very good of all of you! I was surprised to see Sophie just as tall as you are now. When did this happen? It just goes to show that your daughters are more up on some things as their teachers are. You are doing a great job of educating them so much that they are willing to skip school for a few hours to meet one of the most interesting personalities on Fox News. I love Greg Gutfeld’s keen sense of humor and admirable intelligence as well. Thanks for making your memorable day a vicarious experience for your readers!

  3. Thanks for sharing this. I’ve never heard of him, but he sounds interesting. And I don’t think there is anything wrong with any of the pictures you posted. I’ll have to try to find him on FOX. I don’t listen to them very often.

  4. What a memorable experience for you and two of your girls! They will remember this the rest of their lives. Cheers!

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
