Paul McCartney is going to be signing copies of his new picture book Hey Grandude! in London, it has been revealed.
The Beatle will take part in a rare signing at the Piccadilly branch of London’s Waterstones alongside illustrator Kathryn Durst to celebrate his new children’s book on September 6.
During the special appearance, McCartney will read the story of ‘Grandude’ – “a super-cool Grandad who takes his grandchildren on a whirlwind magical mystery tour, from tropical seas to Alpine mountains, all before bedtime!”
The news was shared from McCartney’s official Twitter account today (August 8), on the same day as the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ iconic ‘Abbey Road’ photoshoot.
The tweet shared a link to McCartney’s website, where fans and customers will have the chance to purchase one of a limited amount of tickets to attend the event with up to two children or grandchildren to meet the singer-songwriter and have a copy of Hey Grandude! signed in person.
Paul and illustrator @KathrynDurst will be visiting @WaterstonesPicc in London on 6th September to sign copies of Paul's new picture book ‘Hey Grandude!’. Tickets go on sale on Monday 12th August at 10am. More info HERE: https://t.co/fjLwwoEDfd pic.twitter.com/T19yvzuecK
