'The Office' was one of the top sitcoms of the early 2000s and one of the stars from the show will be in Minnesota to celebrate their new book at the Maplewood Mall.

The Barnes & Noble at the Maplewood Mall is hosting a book signing for "The Office" star's newest book. Brain Baumgartner, known for his role as Kevin Malone on the hit TV show wrote a book called 'Seriously Good Chili Cookbook: 177 of the Best Recipes in the World'.

Of course, Kevin's most famous scene on the show was when he brought in Kevin's Famous Chili and spilled it all over the floor:

Just remember, "The key is to undercook the onions". Turns out, Brian is as big of a chili fan as the character he portrayed is. All 177 recipes in his new cookbook are all different chili recipes.

Brain hails from Georgia, but according to Bring Me The News, The owner of Maplewood, Ben Hamd, is a big-time "Office" fan, and he reached out to Brain. So, this isn't part of a book tour or special celebration.

Brian will be at the Barnes & Noble store in the Maplewood Mall on Saturday, May 6th, 2023. He'll be signing books from noon - 2 pm, and doing a meet and greet from 2 pm - 4 pm. Looks like if you want a book autographed, you'll need to buy a copy of the new cookbook. However, the meet and greet is free.

The Maplewood Mall is located at 3001 White Bear Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota.
