    “The Office” cast member Brian Baumgartner will visit The University of Scranton for an exclusive Q and A with students, followed by a public book signing for his just published book “Welcome to Dunder Mifflin: The Ultimate Oral History of The Office.”

    Called “The definitive history of The Office” by E! News, “Welcome to Dunder Mifflin,” co-authored with Ben Silverman, the executive producer of The Office, is based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with the actors, creators, writers, producers, directors, network executives and crew members of The Office, who share their favorite stories of the making of what became the most-watched series in the world. The book includes 100 behind-the-scenes photographs and a foreword written by the U.S. show’s creator Greg Daniels.

    The book includes memories from Steve Carell, John Krasinkski, Jenna Fischer, Ricky Gervais, Rainn Wilson, Angela Kinsey, Craig Robinson, Brian Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith, Kate Flannery, Ed Helms, Oscar Nunez, Amy Ryan, Ellie Kemper, Creed Bratton, Paul Lieberstein and Mike Schur, among others.

    Baumgartner played Kevin Malone on The Office, which originally aired on NBC from 2005 to 2013, was among the most popular shows on Netflix and can now be seen on Peacock. He was among the cast members who visited the University for The Office Convention in 2007 and The Wrap Party in 2013. He was also on campus for the taping of his popular podcast on the history of The Office, which was the precursor to his book.

    Baumgartner will meet with University of Scranton students exclusively for a Q and A session on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m. in the DeNaples Center. Pre-registration is required for attendance. Contact studentlife@scranton.edu with questions regarding this event.

    A book signing, which is open to the public, will be held with Baumgartner on the DeNaples Center patio from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 18. A book signing with Baumgartner is also planned at Coopers Seafood House from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, followed by an After Party at the Backyard Alehouse.

    “Welcome to Dunder Mifflin: The Ultimate Oral History of The Office,” published by Custom House, is available at the University bookstore.
