Baltimore is excited to welcome Emmy-award winning actor Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) for two exclusive engagements. On Saturday, September 20 at  An Evening with Tony Hale at Calvert School, and on Sunday, September 21 at aMuse Toys’ The Lab, Tony Hale will present his children’s book, Archibald’s Next Big Thing.

Released by Boxing Clever Publishing, Archibald’s Next Big Thing is the extraordinary adventure of an extra-ordinary chicken named Archibald Strutter as he takes off on a fantastic journey in hopes of finding his next big thing. Through new friends and experiences, the wide-eyed, semi-bald chicken finally discovers that, while looking for the next big thing isn’t a bad thing, we should always remember that big and beautiful things are all around us…right now.

Regarding the inspiration for the book, Hale said, “The thoughts of an actor aren’t very different from Archibald’s. I always find myself looking ahead to the next big role, the next big opportunity, obsessed with the question, ‘What’s next, what’s next, WHAT’S NEXT!?’ But embracing and enjoying the PRESENT is a message I want both my daughter and myself to remember. Every. Single. Day.”

At the first Baltimore event, An Evening with Tony Hale at Calvert School on Saturday, September 20, Hale will discuss his new book and his acting career, as well as the challenges he faces trying to embrace the present moment. There will be a Q&A discussion, followed by a book signing. Admission is $5, or free with the $24.99 purchase of Archibald’s Next Big Thing.

The following afternoon, Sunday, September 21, Tony will appear at aMuse Toys at the store’s Quarry Lake location. Gathering in The Lab at aMuse Toys, attendees will listen to Tony as he reads from Archibald’s Next Big Thing. Following the reading will be a book signing and a craft project inspired by the character from the book, Archibald. Space is limited, and intended for ages four and up. Each book purchase admits one adult and up to two children (4+).
