David Sedaris coming to Tulane on Oct. 24

Posted By on Tue, Aug 14, 2012 at 10:46 AM

WWNO announced in an email to members that the fiercely witty writer and monologist David Sedaris will come to Tulane's McAlister Auditorium on Wednesday, Oct. 24 for a reading and book signing. There is a special pre-sale for members now, and tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Aug. 17.

The author of the essay collections Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary is releasing a new book, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, in the spring.

The NPR affiliate most recently brought This American Life host Ira Glass to McAlister for an event. Sedaris debuted many of his stories that would later appear in print on that show, and he still contributes the program (recently he performed on a live episode of TAL).

One of his most beloved stories is one about strange European Christmas tradition and lore that appeared in Esquire. Here's audio of him reading it.
