David Sedaris returns to Seattle for 8 shows January 5-11

Hear Sedaris read from his newest essay collection Calypso - to be released June 2018

David Sedaris returns to Seattle, one of his favorite cities, from January 5-11. For seven consecutive evenings and one matinee, Sedaris will delight Seattle audiences with workshop readings from his soon-to-be-published essay collection Calypso at the Broadway Performance Hall. The intimate 295-seat setting allows audience members to be up-close-and-personal with Sedaris as he polishes the final draft and answers questions from the audience. All workshop readings begin at 7pm with one 2pm matinee on Sunday, January 7.

Northwest Associated Arts (NWAA), KNKX 88.5fm and The Stranger present David Sedaris. General Admission seats are $50. Tickets are at sedaris.strangertickets.com.

About David Sedaris
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. He is the master of satire and one of today's most observant writers addressing the human condition, especially apparent in his latest book, a collection of his diaries entitled Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002) published May 2017.

Beloved for his personal essays and short stories, David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever, Holidays on Ice, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, and Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002). He is the author of Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, a collection of fables with illustrations by Ian Falconer. Each of these books was an immediate bestseller. He was also the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. His pieces regularly appear in The New Yorker and have twice been included in 'The Best American Essays.' There are over ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.

He and his sister, Amy Sedaris, have collaborated under the name 'The Talent Family' and have written half-a-dozen plays, which have been produced off-Broadway at Drama Dept. and Lincoln Center and off-off-Broadway at La Mama E.T.C., in New York City. These plays include Stump the Host, Stitches, One Woman Shoe, which received an Obie Award, Incident at Cobbler's Knob, and The Book of Liz, which was published in book form by Dramatists Play Service.

Sedaris' original audio pieces can often be heard on the public radio show 'This American Life.' He has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for 'Best Spoken Word' and 'Best Comedy Album.' His latest audio recording of new stories (recorded live) is David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure (November 2009). A feature film adaptation of his story C.O.G. was released after a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival (2013). Since 2011, he can be heard annually on a series of live recordings on BBC Radio 4 entitled Meet David Sedaris.

As a companion piece to Theft By Finding, Jeffrey Jenkins published and edited an art book of Sedaris's diary covers, entitled David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium (October 2017). A forthcoming book of essays entitled Calypso is set to be published June 2018 and a second volume of his diaries is expected for summer 2019.
