About the Author


Jeff Kinney is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and the Awesome Friendly Kid series. He is a six-time Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award winner for Favorite Book and has been named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. He spent his childhood in the Washington, D.C., area and moved to New England, where he and his wife own a bookstore named An Unlikely Story.

Monsignor Daniel B. Gallagher, a priest of the Diocese of Gaylord (U.S.A.), is currently assigned to the Office of Latin Letters at the Vatican Secretariat of State. He completed a B.S. and M.A. at the University of Michigan, an M.A. at the Catholic University of America, and a S.T.L. and Ph.D. at the Pontifical Gregorian University. He formerly taught philosophy and Latin at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan. His study of medieval philosophy led to a passion for Latin, which he now teaches at the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study. Monsignor Gallagher is the editor of the Values in Italian Philosophy series and a regular contributor to the Philosophy and Popular Culture series. His articles have appeared in such journals as Postgraduate Journal of Aesthetics, Josephinum Journal of Theology, Sacred Architecture Journal, Journal for Christian Theological Research, Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Quarterly, Maritain Studies, The Latin Americanist, Social Justice Review, as well as various collected volumes. He is the translator of Vittorio Possenti’s Nihilism and Metaphysics: The Third Voyage (SUNY Press, 2014). Monsignor Gallagher’s latest activities focus on teaching and writing Latin according to the method of his predecessor in the Office of Latin Letters, Fr. Reginald Foster, O.C.D., a mission Gallagher shares with his colleagues at the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study.
