David Sedaris, author of the previous bestsellers “Calypso,” “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” and “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim,” and regular National Public Radio (NPR) contributor, returns to Anchorage for one night only following the release of his newest books “The Best of Me” and “A Carnival of Snackery.”
Over the past 30 years, Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. Wielding sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Sedaris slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness, and proves that he’s one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. Join David Sedaris for an evening and see what’s so funny.
