David Sedaris

Symphony Hall

David Sedaris has shared his life with us – millions of us – and made us laugh for decades. From the absurdist adventures of his early career to his wry and devastating recent examinations of aging, family, and mortality, his essays, diaries, and bestselling books have reflected his expansive curiosity, his relentless powers of observation, his cheerful misanthropy…and his often surprisingly, hilariously revolting streak. Join David for a touching, morbid, hilarious, shocking evening of essays, diary entries, and more, and make plans to stay after the reading to meet him in person.
