Popular memoirist David Sedaris will visit CU Boulder on May 6 as part of the speaking tour for his upcoming book Calypso.
Sedaris will speak on campus at Macky Auditorium and will hold a Q&A and book signing after his talk. The talk is open to a general audience. Tickets are on sale now starting at $42. This is the first time Sedaris has visited Boulder in over two years. He will be back in the area on June 21 for a reading at the Tattered Cover bookstore in Denver.
Sedaris is a prominent humorist who is most well-known for his comedic yet poignant essays about his dysfunctional family. He first rose to fame after the 1999 publication of The Santaland Diaries, a series of essays about when he worked as a Macy’s Christmas elf in New York City. Since then, he has published over a dozen books.
