WUKY Presents and evening with David Sedaris

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and 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, and When You Are Engulfed in Flames, each of which became a bestseller.  There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.  Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.”  His newest book, a collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer), was released in September 2010.  Sedaris will visit Lexington for one night only, featuring all-new readings of his work and a book signing.
