Join best-selling author and NPR contributor, David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories, an audience Q&A, and a book signing, following the release of his newest books The Best of Me and A Carnival of Snackery.
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr. Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent
humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness
proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human
condition today. His new book, The Best of Me (Little Brown/ Hachette, Fall 2020), is a collection of 42
previously published stories and essays, about which novelist Andrew Sean Greer wrote in the New York
Times: “You must read The Best of Me. It will be a new experience, knowing that enough time has
passed to find humor in the hardest parts of life. More than ever — we’re allowed to laugh.”
If you love David Sedaris’s cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you’re getting
into at his live readings. You’d be wrong. To see him read his own work on stage allows his
autobiographical narrative to reveal a uniquely personal narrative that will keep you laughing throughout
the evening. Don’t miss this event!
