Lock up your history books! On Tuesday, May 6, author, Park Sloper and “Daily Show” contributor John Hodgman will read from his new book, “More Information Than You Require,” a collection of fake trivia, at a benefit for PS 107.
“I will be speaking about the long and close relationship between Thomas Jefferson and the Mole Men,” said the Comedy Central fixture, whose last book included a list entitled “Nine U.S. Presidents Who Had Hooks for Hands.”
Hodgman, who is widely recognized as the actor portraying the fusty PC in a series of Macintosh commercials, will be joined by novelist Darin Strauss (“More Than It Hurts You”), comic Patrick Borelli and perhaps some “special guests” for the evening, which will benefit the school’s library collection.
Hodgman, who has a child enrolled at the school, urged GO Brooklyn, “Apart from the delight of fiction, comedy and fake trivia, this is a good cause for people to take part in.”
“Readings on the Fourth Floor” will take place at 7:30 pm on May 6 at PS 107 (13th Street and Eighth Avenue in Park Slope). $15. For information, visit www.ps107.org.
