In honor of Keri Smith’s newest book, WRECK THIS JOURNAL EVERYWHERE, this kid and teen-friendly event is a celebration of creativity, imperfection and exploration. Come immerse yourself in the world of Wreck by scribbling, doodling, writing, coloring, stomping, and best of all…destroying gigantic, Alice in Wonderland-style pages of the book. Crayons, markers, chalk, stickers and other fun “wrecking tools” will be provided, as well as wreckable badges and t-shirts for at-home wrecking.
About the Wrecking phenomenon:
With more than two million copies sold, Keri Smith’s “creativity through destruction” guidebook—WRECK THIS JOURNAL—is a global phenomenon, garnering legions of fans around the world who share their creations on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and in You Tube videos. The Believer says “Keri Smith may well be the self-help guru this DIY generation deserves” and O, the Oprah magazine says she will encourage you to “start relishing the artistic process.”
On June 3rd, Perigee Books will release WRECK THIS JOURNAL EVERYWHERE: a travel-size version, which gives avid fans and wanna-be-wreckers a new companion for wrecking out in the world. Wreck This Journal Everywhere features dozens of new activities as well as the most popular on-the-go prompts from the original.
