“Glee’s” Chris Colfer Shops His Bestselling Book Series “The Land of Stories” Around Town

The former Glee star is looking to take his popular children’s book series to the big screen.

After meetings with Warner Bros., Chris Colfer’s THE LAND OF STORIES YA book series will continue to shop film rights around town. In addition to writing a bestselling children’s book series, you may recognize this author from his role as Kurt Hummel in Fox’s Glee.

In 2012, Colfer released the first book in the series called The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell. It followed the lives of twins Alex and Connor as they are magically teleported to a world where fairy tales live. The books have appeared on The New York Times bestseller list and are now making the rounds for their eventual big screen adaptation with Rob Weisbach repping the film rights.

The series has been favorably compared to Harry Potter, The Spiderwick Chronicles, and Percy Jackson. The latest entry, The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms, hits shelves this past July.

The books definitely connect with the escapism that many tweens and teens embrace, and with an identifiable setup like living in a single-parent household, these films should make a welcome addition to a lot of family film nights.

Colfer’s first novel, Struck By Lightning, has already been adapted into a film starring Colfer, Allison Janney, Christina Hendricks, Dermot Mulroney, and Sarah Hyland.

Clovis to unveil banners featuring famous residents – including Chris

The City of Clovis will unveil a series of banners in tribute to famous former residents during a special ceremony on Thursday.

The banners will be displayed on the Old Town Trail, to the east of Clovis Avenue and north of Shaw Avenue, and feature successful residents who came from the community. The first five banners will feature:


• Chris Colfer, Golden Globe-winning and Emmy Award-nominated actor, author, screenwriter and producer.


“These banners are designed to continue telling the story of Clovis’ heritage as well as to inform the public on the huge number of people from Clovis who are incredibly talented and who have gone on to impact the world,” said Clovis Mayor Nathan Magsig.

The project was created by the Tourism Advisory Committee, which spent two years researching and creating a list of famous residents or Clovis Unified School District graduates. The Clovis City Council has approved a budget to continue adding five new banners each year and the committee is already working on the next group of banners to be displayed in 2016.

The city will host an unveiling ceremony at the northeast corner of Clovis and Shaw Avenues at 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 3.

In My Library: Chris Colfer

If you thought Chris Colfer misses being part of TV’s late hit, “Glee,” guess again. “It was an amazing experience but it was like putting on a new Broadway show every week,” says the actor who played Kurt. “A lot of shows have hiatuses but we never, ever got a break because we’d go on tour during the summer.” Besides, the 25-year-old says, he had other fish to fry: He’s just come out with “Beyond the Kingdoms,” the fourth book in his bestselling YA series, “The Land of Stories.” He’s also working with a dialect coach to prep for his role in an upcoming Noel Coward biopic co-starring Ian McKellen and Stephen Fry. Any “Glee” regrets? “I’d go back and get [guest star] Shirley MacLaine’s phone number if I could!” he says.

Here’s what’s in his library:

The Demonologist by Gerald Brittle
This chronicles the careers of Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were made famous recently by the film “The Conjuring.” I’ve always loved good ghost stories. This stuck with me because it’s told almost like a textbook — it doesn’t try to creep you out but the basic facts are creepy enough. Scary movies freak me out too much, but I love reading about this.

Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher
I’ve been a fan of hers for years! I met her once, briefly, in a Marc Jacobs store. She told me I had pretty eyes, and I nearly died! I love this book. There are so many books by privileged people telling others how they live their lives. It takes a special person to say, “These are my flaws, and this is how I’m dealing with them.”

Intimacy Idiot by Isaac Oliver
I’m biased, because Isaac is a friend of mine, but he’s very funny and very honest about his life as a young gay man in New York City and his lack of intimacy. With all the social media, it’s become increasingly hard to have a human connection. I think anyone, gay or straight, who’s trying to hack his way through the dating world would enjoy this.

Naked by David Sedaris
I absolutely worship him — I’ve read most of his books. I have the audiobook of this with David reading it at Carnegie Hall. I love his view of his family and how he’s able to find the humor in everyone. I come from a huge extended family and every one of us is crazy, but our own unique kind of crazy.
