We were so delighted when we got a call that Ben Berkley, editorial coordinator of The Onion Book of Known Knowledge, would be in the area over the Thanksgiving holiday, we immediately agreed to host him at Eagle Harbor Books. We have lots of fans of The Onion (also known as America's Finest News Source), and why wouldn't they want "a devastatingly important encylopedia containing the sum total of mankind's knowledge"?
Prepare to be dazzled!
Ben Berkley joined The Onion editorial team in 2010 and is currently pulling double duty as the staff’s editorial coordinator and resident hand model. Ben is a proud native of Tempe, Arizona and a graduate of a small, private liberal arts college called Arizona State University. He is wholly unqualified to speak in public.

The Onion says, "Replete with an astonishing assemblage of facts, illustrations, maps, charts, threats, and blood to edify even the most simple-minded book-buyer, this compendium is packed with valuable information — such as the life stages of an Aunt; places to kill one's self in Utica, New York; and the dimensions of a female bucket, or 'pail.' Must be purchased immediately to avoid the sting of eternal ignorance."

Author: David Sedaris will perform at The Midland. Rainy Day Books will be there to Sell David's Books. During David's performance, he will "champion" the Book, Our Dumb World by The Onion. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that David is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. David is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim and When You Are Engulfed in Flames, each of which became a Bestseller. There are a total of seven million copies of his Books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. He was the Editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. David's pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in The Best American Essays. He and his sister, Amy Sedaris, have collaborated under the name "The Talent Family" and have written half-a-dozen plays which have been produced at La Mama, Lincoln Center, and The Drama Department in New York City. These plays include Stump the Host, Stitches, One Woman Shoe, which received an Obie Award, Incident at Cobbler's Knob, and The Book of Liz, which was published in book form by Dramatists Play Service. David's original radio pieces can often be heard on This American Life, distributed nationally by Public Radio International and produced by WBEZ. David has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album.
