An Evening with David Sedaris

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

An Evening with David Sedaris, Presented by: Innovation Arts & Entertainment.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, DAVID SEDARIS has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms & political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. Sedaris is the author of the collections of personal essays Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, & Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, all of which have become bestsellers. Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker & have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” His latest book entitled Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls was just released in paperback June 2014. DAVID SEDARIS will appear for one night only, featuring all-new readings of his work & a book signing.

Special Restrictions: Reserved Seating. Tickets will be on sale soon. Check back for more information.
