An Evening with David Sedaris

PLEASE NOTE: Des Moines Performing Arts is co-presenting David Sedaris with Hoyt Sherman Place at Hoyt Sherman Place.

With sardonic wit and incisive critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's preeminent 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 observed 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, all which have become bestsellers. His pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in "The Best American Essays." His newest book, a collection of fables entitledSquirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer), was released in September 2010. His next book entitled Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls will be published in late spring 2013.

David Sedaris will appear for one night only, featuring all-new readings of his work and a book signing.
