Join best-selling author and public radio contributor David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories, an audience Q&A and a book signing.
Sedaris’ sardonic wit and incisive social critiques have made him one of America’s preeminent humorists and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. His collections of personal essays and short stories have included Barrel Fever, Holidays on Ice, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls and Theft by Finding: Diaries (1977-2002).
He now returns to the road following the release of his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious collection, Calypso, a look at middle age and mortality. Calypso was a New York Times best-seller and a Washington Post Best Book of the Year, and the audiobook was nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award in the Best Spoken Word Album category.
