BJ Novak is a Newton South alum. He has been a writer, actor and producer on the NBC comedy show, The Office, and he has appeared in several movies. Most recently, BJ is the author of a best-selling book of short stories, “One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories.” The New York Times calls the book “drôle and smart in spades, but often humane and vulnerable, too.”
Please join us at a benefit for the Southside Program, on Wednesday, April 16 at 7:30PM, where BJ will perform/read some of these stories and answer questions for the audience about writing, life in Hollywood, or anything else of interest. After the show, BJ will be happy to sign autographs, or pose for a picture in the lobby. Tickets are $15. A limited number of Premium Package tickets will be available. These will include a pre-show reception with BJ, a copy of the book, and reserved seating. Cost is $75.
Tickets will be sold in the cafeteria during lunch blocks starting the week of March 17th. Tickets can also be ordered by mail. Please indicate how many tickets and what type of ticket (general or premium) you are ordering, and include your e-mail address so that we can confirm your order. All paid tickets will be held at the door for pick up on the night of the show. Checks should be made out to Southside Program / NSHS and sent to Linda Novak, Newton South High School, Goodwin House, 140 Brandeis Rd., Newton Centre, MA 02459.
