Elliott Bay Book Company: John Hodgman: ‘That is All’

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue. $25-$30.

Literary, Media Library

In 2005, The Areas of My Expertise, a handy little book of Complete World Knowledge, gathered fascinating trivia and “facts” completely made up by its author, John Hodgman. But during an interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, an incredible transformation occurred: He became a famous minor television personality and returned with More Information Than You Require, a New York Times bestseller. And now Hodgman—famous all over again as an Apple pitchman—completes his vision with That Is All, the last book in the trilogy—just in time for the end of human history in 2012. He'll be joined by singer/songwriter Jonathan Roderick . Presented by Elliott Bay Book Company.
