With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers.
For almost 20 years, this internationally acclaimed humorist has entertained audiences with his astute, satirical assessment of the human condition. Sedaris’ latest book, “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls,” debuted at Number One on the New York Times Bestseller List. Sedaris comes back 3 p.m. Nov. 10 to Popejoy Hall.
Sedaris’ writing became well known after radio show host Ira Glass heard Sedaris reading excerpts from his diary in a Chicago club. Glass asked Sedaris to read on his program, “The Wild Room.” This then led to an appearance on National Public Radio, where Sedaris read “The SantaLand Diaries,” about his experiences working as a Christmas elf at Macy’s department store.
