The most recent season of "The Mindy Project" ended on a high point: the observation deck of the Empire State Building.

B.J. Novak coming to Wellesley

B.J. Novak of NBC's Emmy-award winning comedy series The Office will read from his new children's book, T he Book With No Pictures , at the Wellesley Free Library on October 25 at 2:00 p.m. Novak, who has played a smarmy, opportunistic office drone in The Office, and followed that up with One More Thing , a book of humorous essays decidedly not for children, has apparently shaken all the inappropriate out of his system for now, so is following in the footsteps of many a Hollywood talent and taken the next logical step of appealing to a new, young audience. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud.
