David Sedaris is Coming to Town
If you're not one of the lucky ones going to see David Sedaris at the Alys Stephens Center on October 9, then come visit the library for your Sedaris fix. We've got his books, audio CDs and downloadables, and DVDs.
If you've never read him, then I envy you your first time. If you've never heard him live, you're missing a treat. His delivery of his self-deprecating, dysfunctional-family humor is a hoot.
His sister Amy is pretty funny, too.
