With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, beloved NPR humorist and bestselling author David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent 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.
Well-known for his side-splitting essays and short stories, Sedaris first gained widespread recognition when National Public Radio invited him to read “SantaLand Diaries,” the now-famous account of his experiences as a Macy’s elf. His trademark self-deprecation and dry humor routinely earns New York Times Best Seller status for his published collections, which include Me Talk Pretty One Day and Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls. This special appearance features readings of new and unpublished work, audience Q&A, and post-show book signing.
