At once tummy-achingly hilarious and heartbreakingly incisive, essayist David Sedaris writes humor like no one else. His books -- about family, love, art, loss and the compulsive urge to lick light switches -- paint indelible pictures of modern life and all of its attendant neuroses. Attend An Evening with David Sedaris, which includes a question-and-answer session with the internationally beloved humorist. Left Bank Books is selling Sedaris' essay collections at the event, and he is signing autographs. Don't miss the chance to meet the man behind pretty much all your NPR driveway moments.
