"Drawn Together" features four famous known authors and illustrators of children's books including, Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dav Pilkey, author of Captain Underpants, Lincoln Peirce, author of Big Nate and Stephan Pastis, author of Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.

The authors are coming from around the country to attend the book-signing event, because they wanted to help the teachers and schools devastated by the Moore tornado.
