David Sedaris Live at BAM
Howard Gilman Opera House, 30 Lafayette Avenue
(tickets sold through BAM)
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. Sedaris is the author of the collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and When You Are Engulfed in Flames, each of which became 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. Sedaris will visit Brooklyn for two nights, featuring all-new readings of his work and a book signing. Greenlight Bookstore is proud to be the official bookseller at BAM and will have copies of all of his titles for sale at our kiosk on site at the Howard Gilman Opera House. The May 8 performance is sold out; tickets may still be available for the May 7 performance, starting at $49! For tickets call 718-636-4100, visit the BAM Howard Gilman Box Office, or go to www.BAM.org/davidsedaris.
