Humor writer, David Sedaris, is coming to Springfield.  He’ll bring his brand of adult humor to the historic Gillioz Theatre for An Evening of David Sedaris Friday, May 1. 

Admission is free, and tickets will be available beginning at 10 a.m. on March 4.  More details will be available later.

The event is being underwritten by the Friends of the Library and is part of the Springfield-Greene County Library’s annual community celebration of reading, “The One Read.”

Sedaris will read from new and unpublished material and will take part in a Q & A with the audience.  He’ll sign books before and after the event.

Sedaris gained recognition in 1992 when National Public Radio broadcast his essay, “Santaland Diaries,” which it still replays over the holidays.
