Stephen Chbosky, author and director of Perks of Being a Wallflower, will host a reading, signing and Q&A from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 26, at the Bookmans at Grant and Campbell.

After releasing the novel in 1999, Chbosky went on to write the screenplay and direct the film adaptation, which was released last October. The book had garnered a cult following by the time the film was released.

Though Chbosky began this project as an author, he also has an extensive background in film. A graduate of the University of Southern California's filmic writing program, his first film, The Four Corners of Nowhere, debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995. Chbosky also wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of Rent, and helped create CBS's Jericho.

The signing is free and open to the public.
