NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. -- A reading at a North Carolina library was intended for young people, but the person behind the book attracted plenty of adults as well.
That’s because the reader Tuesday was Zach Galifianakis, a comedian, movie star and Wilkes County, N.C., native. The Winston-Salem Journal reported Galifianakis was at the Wilkes County Public Library for a children’s reading that drew hundreds.
Galifianakis joked that he would read from his movie, “The Hangover,” but then read three children’s books, one of which his father wrote.
He stayed afterward for nearly two hours, posing for photos and signing almost anything brought to him including old Wilkes Central High School yearbooks and a GQ magazine with his face on the cover.
