�An Evening with David Sedaris� Presented by the Public Library at Memorial Hall � October 30


On stage, his comedic monologues are greatly enhanced by his deadpan delivery. Over the airwaves, his clever wit is heard on NPR�s This American Life. On the page, his sardonic style is superbly orchestrated in Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked, Holidays on Ice, and Barrel Fever all New York Times bestsellers. His acerbic prose is often published in The New Yorker, Harper�s and Esquire.�

But what�s he really like? Find out as the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County presents �An Evening with David Sedaris� at Memorial Hall

(1225 Elm Street) on October 30 at 8:00 p.m.� Sedaris will delight his audience by reading for 50 minutes from his books and answering questions during a free program made possible through the Library Program Fund. A book signing will follow and books will be available for purchase through the Friends of the Public Library.

Sedaris�s whimsical writings draw upon his life experiences recounting former part-time employment as a moving company worker, an apartment cleaner, an office worker, even an elf in Macy�s Santaland. As a humorist, diarist, radio commentator, essayist, playwright, and short story writer, his special brand of satire is shared with fans who appreciate the playful ways he pokes fun at life�s little absurdities. After growing up in Raleigh, North Carolina, Sedaris moved to Chicago (where he taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago). He currently resides in Paris, because he can smoke anywhere he wants.
