Renowned for his sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris is widely regarded as one of America’s preeminent humorists. Sedaris became a household name in 1992 after performing his essay “Santaland Diaries” on NPR’s Morning Edition. Since then, Sedaris has been a frequent contributor to Ira Glass’s weekly NPR program This American Life and has penned more than a dozen collections of short stories and essays, including Calypso, Me Talk Pretty One Day, and the number-one New York Times bestseller Happy-Go-Lucky. His works regularly appear in The New Yorker, have twice been published in The Best American Essays, and have been nominated for five Grammy Awards. Join Sedaris for an evening of readings and reflections followed by a Q&A session.
