GAMBIER, Ohio — Best-selling author Chris Smith will visit the Kenyon Bookstore, 106 Gaskin Ave., on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 5 p.m. to discuss and sign copies of his book, “The Daily Show (The Book): An Oral History as Told by Jon Stewart, the Correspondents, Staff and Guests.”
In Smith’s best-selling oral history, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and former “Daily Show” writers and guests recount how the TV show found its voice and became a fixture in the American media landscape. The book chronicles memorable moments in the show’s history as well as behind-the-scenes pranks and rivalries.
The book has attracted attention from the New York Times, USA Today and Slate, among other media outlets. The Washington Post wrote, “Readers of this compelling history will appreciate the sweat behind every joke.”
Smith is a contributing editor at New York Magazine, where he has covered politics, sports and entertainment. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
