So I put together a nice display of Sedaris backlist and Ghettoside. The event sign has all the info. The show at the Riverside is April 23, 8 pm. Tickets are $47 and $57, plus taxes and fees. You can be directed to ticket purchase at the Sedaris event page or call the box office at (414) 286-3663.
But wait, I took the photo and forgot about the bookmarks that Dixie dropped off from the theater! We don't always have handy take-aways from our event, hoping instead you'll take our complete upcoming event calendar (the new one is out, and its cosmic orange), but sometimes a bookmark or postcard is just the ticket.
I am clearly very disturbed that I forgot to put it on the display, which accounts for my expression. I have now fixed the problem.
I have also suggested to Emily at Sedaris's agents office that he read Evicted, the new book from Matthew Desmond. Now that it's a huge bestseller (#6 on the New York Times list), it's probably on his radar. But just in case, Emily suggested I recommend it to him at the event. We'll see if we have any downtime when he is looking for bookseller suggestions.
