David Sedaris Returns to Benaroya Hall - 8:00 pm
Benaroya Hall, 200 University St, Seattle, WA 98101
Seattle is loaded with ‘Sedaristas’ who consistently cram the halls for his scheduled appearances; surprisingly, good seats are still available for this highly anticipated November 11, 2013 lecture at Benaroya Hall. Fresh on the heels of his New York Times #1 Bestseller Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, Seattle favorite David Sedaris will read from, and sign copies of, his newest book. Tickets are on sale now. The author delights with twists of humor and intelligence from both published stories and works-in-progress. David Sedaris may well be the closest thing the literary world has these days to a rock star. His sardonic wit and incisive social critiques have made him one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which Sedaris slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that he is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. He is the author of the books Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Holidays on Ice, Naked, and Barrel Fever. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker and Public Radio International's This American Life. He lives in England. Northwest Associated Arts (NWAA) and The Stranger present David Sedaris. Tickets are $52 or $43 and available through the Benaroya Hall Box Office, at 206.215.4747 or online at
