Stephen will perform excerpts from his new book, My Adventures with God, a funny and introspective story collection that cover life from all angles, including love, catastrophe and triumph, all told through the lens of his evolving relationship with the mystery that is “God.”

“Stephen Tobolowsky has found his true calling as storyteller. He is candid, insightful, often profound, and very, very funny,” said film critic and author, Leonard Maltin.
