SAN FRANCISCO, CA-- KALW Public Media presents AN EVENING WITH DAVID SEDARIS author of the best sellers 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 The War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco on November 1, 2021 at 7:30 PM, 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 live in San Francisco. As always, Sedaris will be offering a selection of all-new readings and recollections, as well as a Q&A session and book signing. Books will be available for purchase at the event from Book Passage
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/H 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."
If you love David Sedaris's cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you're getting into at his live readings. You'd be wrong. To see him read his own work on stage allows his autobiographical narrative to reveal a unique personal narrative that will keep you laughing throughout the evening. Don't miss this event.
