Join David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories and observations as well as an audience Q&A and book signing. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, 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.

David Sedaris is the author of "Barrel Fever" and "Holidays on Ice," as well as collections of personal essays, "Naked," "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim," "When You Are Engulfed in Flames," "Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls," and his newest book, "Theft By Finding Diaries (1977-2002)," which was released earlier this year.
