John Hodgman reads from his new book AREAS OF MY EXPERTISE
Wed. Nov. 2nd 7:00PM
In the great tradition of the American almanac, The Areas of My Expertise is a brilliant and hilarious compendium of handy reference tables, fascinating trivia, and sage wisdom on all topics large and small. Although bestsellers such as Poor Richard?s Almanack and The Book of Lists were certainly valuable, they also were largely true. Here is a different kind of handy desk reference, one in which all of the historical oddities and amazing true facts are sifted through the singular, illuminating imagination of John Hodgman?which is the nice way of saying: He made it all up.
John Hodgmean is a contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine, as well as a frequent contributor to This American Life and McSweeney’, where he once answered questions and dispensed advice in the semi-regular, semi-helpful column ASK A FORMER PROFESSIONAL LITERARY AGENT.
This will be a reading and Q&A with musical accompaniment (guitarist). Walkie-talkies may be involved. Visit for more on John’s other exploits
