From Stage to Page With Actor and Writer B.J. Novak

You might know him as The Temp, but B.J. Novak's creative output is much larger than his role as Ryan on "The Office."

In addition to producing and writing for the Emmy Award winning "mockumentary," Novak is also known for his roles in motion pictures such as "Inglourious Basterds" and "Saving Mr. Banks."

The Los Angeles resident and Harvard graduate has now authored a new book, titled "One More Thing," that hit stores earlier this year to rave reviews.

A collection of short, humorous stories, Teddy Wayne of the New York Times reviewed the book as "...droll and smart in spades, but often humane and vulnerable, too."

Novak will talk about the book Thursday as the keynote speaker for the Las Vegas Valley Book Festival.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
