An Evening with B.J. Novak

BJ Headshot - Lo Res (2)The opening keynote speaker for the Vegas Valley Book Festival will be B.J. Novak at 7 p.m., Thursday, October 16, at the Clark County Library.

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.

The Vegas Valley Book Festival, Oct. 16-18, is the largest literary event in Las Vegas. Now in its 13th year, the festival is free and open to the public, thanks to support from the producing partners:  the city of Las Vegas; Las Vegas-Clark County Library District; the Beverly Rogers, Carol C. Harter Black Mountain Institute at UNLV; the local chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design; Las Vegas Review-Journal; Nevada Humanities; and Barnes & Noble. For more information, call 702-507-3459 or visit vegasvalleybookfestival.org.
