An Evening with New York Times Bestselling Author and Humorist David Sedaris Set for December 8

Nov 11 / 2021

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – David Sedaris, author of the previous bestsellers Calypso, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim and regular National Public Radio contributor will be appearing for one night only at IU Auditorium on December 8 at 7:30 p.m., following the release of his newest books The Best of Me and A Carnival of Snackery.


This is a unique opportunity to see the best-selling humorist in an intimate setting. As always, Sedaris will be offering a selection of all-new readings and recollections, as well as a Q&A session and book signing.


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.”


David Sedaris’s cheerfully misanthropic stories read live by the author himself allows his autobiographical narrative to reveal a uniquely personal narrative that keeps audiences laughing throughout the evening.


An Evening with David Sedaris at IU Auditorium is being presented with support from WFIU, Bloomington Bagel Company, and the IU Bookstore.
