An Evening with David Sedaris at Village Books

Please Note: This performance has been postponed from June 23, 2020 at 7:00pm until next year. The performance will now take place on May 19, 2021 at 7:00pm. If you held tickets to the original date, the Box Office will be contacting you.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. Calypso, his latest collection of essays, is a New York Times best-seller, and the audio version has been nominated for a 2019 Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category. There are over ten million copies of his books in print, and in March 2019 he was elected into the American Academy of Arts and Letters.


                  “Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

Village Books is proud to present David Sedaris in partnership with the Mount Baker Theatre, as part of our Booked at the Baker series. Event starts at 7pm, doors open at 6pm. Tickets are available at the Mount Baker Theatre Box Office or online at mountbakertheatre.com.
