NAPERVILLE, Ill. – A Golden Globe winner and one of Time magazine’s most influential people of 2011, “Glee” star and new author Chris Colfer poses for a HollywoodChicago.com close-up before his sold-out book signing on July 19, 2012 at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Ill.

Fans from as far away as Canada swarmed to meet their idol for three days of book-signing events to promote his first novel and children’s book “The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell”.

As for his fashion-forward “Glee” character Kurt Hummel, Colfer will be teamed up with one of his real-life idols, Sarah Jessica Parker, as she joins the cast in season four.
