An Evening With B.J. Novak

Author: B.J. Novak

B.J. Novak will open the Vegas Valley Book Festival with his keynote address. Novak is an actor, writer, director and executive producer, best known for his work on NBC's Emmy Award-winning comedy series "The Office." He is also known for his stand-up comedy performances and his roles in motion pictures such as Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" and Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks."
 
From a stored box of ideas collected over a ten-year period, he wrote the book "One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories," which debuted in February at #4 on The New York Times Best Sellers List to overwhelmingly positive reviews. It's a collection of 64 comic short stories, all about the human inability to find perspective. "The Book With No Pictures," his first endeavor into children's books, hits stores September 30.
 
Novak is a graduate of Harvard University with a degree in English and Spanish literature. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
 
His books, "One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories” and “The Book With No Pictures," will be available for purchase and a book signing will follow the talk.
