Reality TV family plans visit

    The Duggar Family, stars of the TV show “19 Kids and Counting,” will be at IMAX Entertainment Complex in November for a book signing.

    The Duggar family, stars of the reality show “19 Kids and Counting,” will be in Branson next month signing their new book, “A Love that Multiplies.”

    “We love going to Branson as a family,” said father Jim Bob Duggar on Monday afternoon. “Our kids love going to Silver Dollar City and the other attractions there and we are only about two-and-a-half hours away.”

    When the Duggars arrive Nov. 12, they’ll make an appearance during the show “A Tribute to John Denver” at IMAX Entertainment Complex.  The star of the show, James Garrett, is a friend of the Duggars and Jim Bob Duggar’s sister Deanna Duggar-Jordyn often performs in the morning show.

    From 1:30-4:30 p.m. that day, the family will be at the IMAX signing books.

    “We are just overwhelmed they’d ask and give us an opportunity to help them promote their latest book,” said Tom Forster, IMAX director of marketing. “We know they are popular. We know they are well-liked and they have a huge fan club.”

    Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar were married in 1984. After having their first son, Michelle Duggar began using birth control pills again, but ended up getting pregnant and miscarrying, according to information from the family.

    After researching birth control, they prayed and asked God to forgive them and teach them to love children like he loves children. According to their bio, the couple also asked God to bless them with as many children as he saw fit.

    To date, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar have 19 children and two grandchildren.

    Jim Bob Duggar has served two terms in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999-2003 and was a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2002. He is now a commercial real estate investor.

    In addition to “19 Kids and Counting.” the family has appeared on numerous other shows.

    The Duggars reside in Tontitown, Ark.
