B.J. Novak (The Office, Amazing Spider-Man 2) appears at the Brattle Theatre on Thursday October 2, 2014 at 6:00 PM!
Harvard Book Store and 826 Boston welcome back actor, writer, and humorist B.J. NOVAK for a reading from his first book for kids, the innovative The Book with No Pictures. Tickets are on sale online only at bjnovak.eventbrite.com.
You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .
BLORK. Or BLUURF.
Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.
Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)
