Description :

Best known for his starring role as ‘Kurt Hummel’ in the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe® and SAG award-winning comedy Glee, Colfer has authored his first children's book, The Land of Stories, due to be released on July 17, 2012 from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. A fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairytales, The Land of Stories tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner Bailey. Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, Alex and Conner leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the characters they grew up reading about.
In other book-related pursuits, Colfer recently adapted The Little Leftover Witch, a pilot for the Disney Channel based on the children's book of the same name by Florence Laughlin.

Colfer will next be seen starring in the independent film Struck By Lightning, which he also wrote and produced. Brian Dannelly (Saved) directs the coming-of-age comedy which also stars Allison Janney, Christina Hendricks, Dermot Mulroney and Sarah Hyland.

Colfer’s performance as ‘Kurt Hummel’ has earned him a Golden Globe®, two Emmy® nominations, a SAG nomination, and inclusion in the 2011 TIME 100, Time Magazine's annual list of the one hundred most influential people in the world.

Colfer appears courtesy of his publisher, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
