AN EVENING WITH DAVID SEDARIS

This is a unique opportunity to see the best-selling humorist DAVID SEDARIS in an intimate setting at the historic Virginia Theatre, following the release of his newest books Happy-Go-Lucky and A Carnival of Snackery.  As always, Mr. Sedaris will be offering a selection of all-new readings and recollections as well as a live Q&A session and book signing. Books will be available for sale at the event, courtesy of Illini Union Bookstore.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David 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.

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 David read his own work on stage allows his autobiographical tales to reveal a uniquely personal narrative that will keep you laughing throughout the evening.
