WNYC is a media sponsor of "An Evening with David Sedaris" on May 7th & 8th at BAM. Sedaris will be reading new material followed by a question and answer session and book signing.
With his sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most perceptive writers addressing the human condition today. Sedaris is the author of the personal essay collections Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and When You Are Engulfed in Flames, each of which was a bestseller. His newest book, a collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer), was released in September 2010 and immediately hit the New York Times bestseller fiction list. Sedaris visits Brooklyn for two nights only, featuring all-new readings of his work and a book signing.
