The Vancouver Writers Fest presents An Evening with David Sedaris, author of bestsellers Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and regular National Public Radio contributor. Following the release of his new book Theft By Finding Diaries (1977 – 2002), a collection of diaries, Sedaris will be appearing for one night only at Vogue Theatre on Sunday, May 13 at 7:30 pm and *ADDITIONAL SHOW ADDED* Monday, May 14 at 7:30pm.

This is a unique opportunity to see the best-selling humorist in an intimate setting. Sedaris will present all-new readings and recollections, as well as host a Q & A session and post-show book signing.

Tweaking the familiar until it warps, David Sedaris mines poignant comedy from his peculiar childhood in North Carolina, his bizarre career path, and his move to France with his lover. Including his recent releases, the New York Times’ bestsellers When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, Sedaris’ wickedly witty observations of the ordinary-bizarre are always sure to deliver insights and laughs.

One of six children in a second-generation Greek family, he grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. In 1977, he dropped out of Kent State University to hitchhike around the country. In addition to working as an elf, Sedaris has held a number of charmingly quirky jobs. He has been a house painter, an apple picker, an aide in a mental hospital, a creative writing teacher at the Art Institute of Chicago, and an apartment cleaner. In 2001, he was named Humorist of the Year by Time magazine and received the Thurber Prize for American Humor.

All seats at Vogue Theatre are reserved, and range in price from $47.25 to $57.25 (subject to additional taxes and fees). In partnership with the Vancouver Writers Fest, tickets go on pre-sale with code VWF on Monday, January 29, 2018.
