The first official Minecraft novel! In the tradition of iconic adventures like Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of World War Z tells the story of a hero—stranded in the world of Minecraft—who must unravel the secrets of a mysterious island in order to survive. Washed up on a beach, the lone castaway looks around the shore. Where am I? Who am I? And why is everything made of blocks? But there isn’t much time to soak up the sun. It’s getting dark, and there’s a strange new world to explore!

The top priority is finding food. The next is not becoming food. Because there are others out there on the island . . . like the horde of zombies that appear after night falls. Crafting a way out of this mess is a challenge like no other. This is a wristbanded event

His films, including Central Intelligence, Think Like A Man, Get Hard, Ride Along, The Wedding Ringer, and The Secret Life Of Pets have earned over $3.5 billion at the box office. His stand-up comedy tours, including Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain, and Kevin Hart: What Now?, have sold-out arenas and football stadiums, leading Forbes to name him the “king of comedy.” He is also the first comedian with a Nike sneaker line; a television producer, creating the BET show Real Husbands of Hollywood and the Laugh Out Loud Network; and CEO of Hartbeat Productions.

CA – Jake the Fake Signing

Craig Robinson and Adam Mansbach appear at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble on Wednesday, April 26th at 7:00 PM to discuss and sign their wildly entertaining new book, JAKE THE FAKE KEEPS IT REAL.

For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate comes a new side-splitting series from comedian and film star Craig Robinson, #1 The New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach, and NAACP History Maker recipient and cartoonist Keith Knight.

Jake can barely play an instrument, not even a kazoo. And his art? It’s better suited for Pictionary than Picasso. Which is a real problem because Jake just faked his way into the Music and Art Academy for the gifted and talented (and Jake is pretty sure he is neither). More jokester than composer, Jake will have to think of something quick before the last laugh is on him.

This is a wristbanded event.
A wristband will be issued on a first come, first serve basis to customers who purchase Jake the Fake from Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning April 26th at 9am
