Calendar October 25-31

SAT | OCT 25 
 
B.J. NOVAK 
 
While a book with the title “A Book With No Pictures” might initially sound like a turn off to children, this former “The Office” writer and actor guarantees a good time for both kids and parents. Demanding that every single word on the page get read aloud, Novak forces his readers to say things like “BLORK” and “Glibbity Globbity.” His collection of short stories,“One More Thing,” is a success with adults, and Novak is now bringing some silly onomatopoeia joy to his younger fans. Sat. 1 p.m. Free. Vroman’s Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. (626) 449-5320Nov. 6. Various locations. (310) 247-1800SUN | OCT 26

THE GREAT JEWISH LOVE DEBATE 
 
The holiday season is fast approaching, and with it comes big family feasts, mall traffic and, for many of you, a rude reminder of your singlehood. But don’t worry, you’re not alone. Be one of 200 eligible Jewish singles — 100 men, 100 women — to help try to answer what many are thinking this time of year: “Why is everyone still single?” Hosted and moderated by bestselling author Lori Gottlieb and featuring a panel of top dating experts, this town hall-style discussion will get all those questions — and answers — out in the open as we try to navigate the labyrinth of the human heart. Stick around for a fun post-show mixer. $40. Mon. 7:30 p.m. Sinai Temple, 10400 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles. (949) 689-1555WED | OCT 29
