With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, 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.

His most recent book, The Best of Me, is a collection of 42 previously published stories and essays. A Sedaris story may seem confessional, but is also highly attuned to the world outside. It opens our eyes to what is absurd and moving about our daily existence. And it is almost impossible to read without laughing. A second volume of his diaries, A Carnival of Snackery, came out October 5, 2021. There's no right way to keep a diary, but if there's an entertaining way, David Sedaris seems to have mastered it. At its best, this latest edition is a sort of sampler: the bitter and the sweet. Some entries are just what you wanted. Others you might want to spit discreetly into a napkin.

Preorder your copy of Sedaris's new book Happy-Go-Lucky (publication date: May 31st) at the event and receive a signed bookplate (while supplies last).
