(10.6) Tickets are still available for “An Evening with David Sedaris” Thursday evening at The Vets. The output of this prolific author includes Me Talk Pretty One Day, The Santaland Diaries, Barrel Fever, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, as well as his latest collection of semi-autobiographical essays, Happy-Go-Lucky. From the New York Times review:
. . . in addition to being consistently funny, it contains some festive Sedaris occasions for all those who celebrate. We get a seeming resolution to Sedaris and his father’s lifelong grudge match when Lou tells David, “You won.”
Sedaris will be offering a selection of all-new readings and recollections, followed by a Q&A session and book signing. Advisory: The book has a clown on the cover. The Cleveland Clinic advises: “Most people can avoid clowns.” Of course, David Sedaris is not most people.
Run time: 90 minutes. No intermission. No cameras.
Proof of vaccine or negative COVID-19 test are not required. Masks are optional and welcome.
