David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. He is the master of satire and one of today’s most observant writers addressing the human condition. Calypso, his latest collection of essays, is a New York Times best-seller and a Washington Post Best Book of the Year. The audiobook of Calypso was nominated for a 2019 Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category.
David returns to Seattle for his annual reading and signing at Benaroya Hall. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, he will delight the audience with twists of humor and intelligence as he shares both published stories and works-in-progress. The San Francisco Chronicle says, “Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.”
