In support of the release of his newest book, Happy Go Lucky, a collection of personal essays perfectly in line with the rest of his work, David Sedaris will be live on stage for one night only, offering new readings and tales, a Q&A and a book signing. The author, humorist and frequent NPR contributor has maintained a consistent body of written work which is just as likely to have you burst into laughter as it is tears. His books frequently touch on themes such as family turmoil, mental health, drug use and labor, and more often than not are direct retellings of personal events. The event, that is being put on by Avid Bookshop, is a unique opportunity to catch an author of impressive caliber in a live, intimate setting. Tickets are for sale at
