Join Grammy-nominated humorist, playwright and author David Sedaris at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8 at UABâ€™s Alys Stephens Center for an entertaining and intellectually provocative evening as he celebrates the release of his ninth book, â€śLetâ€™s Explore Diabetes with Owls.â€ť
This new collection of essays from the No. 1 New York Times bestselling author takes readers on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, squat-style toilets of Beijing and particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we share the absurdity and delight of a curious travelerâ€™s experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermistâ€™s shop, Sedarisâ€™ sidesplitting adventures are not to be forgotten.
Tickets are $61.50, $52.50 and $41.50. A book-signing with Sedaris will follow the performance. For tickets, visit the ASC online at www.alysstephens.org or call 205-975-2787.
