Night o' Sedaris #2

Alicia and I really enjoyed seeing David Sedrais on Saturday night at the Orpheum. He read 3-4 stories to us that will be publishing in the New Yorker or in his next book. Then, he gave a non-fiction book recommendation, Is There No Place on Earth for Me? by Susan Sheehan about living w/ schizophrenia. He made a comment that since the woman the book profiles isn't living anymore, there's no need to feel sorry for her as you read the book. It was funny. Then he recommended that we all visit Tokyo. And finally, he answered audience questions mostly about things he's written, the MOA, and politics.

I was busy internetting today and figure out that his sister, Amy, is going to be in town in 3 weeks. And tickets are only $12 w/ my MPR discount :) Anybody interested in that show?

89.3 The Current presents The Current Fakebook with Amy Sedaris at The Fitzgerald Theater on Wednesday, November 15th at 8:00 pm.
The Current Fakebook will bring together writers, be they novelists, screenwriters, bloggers or critics, and some of their favorite musicians for an evening of music and insights that spring from the written word. Current on-air host Mary Lucia, a writer and humorist in her own right, will interview guests and give them time and space to express themselves in a casual, creative and innovative format. The evenings featured musical guest will be Bound Stems. Amy Sedaris, former member of Second City and Annoyance Theatre comedy troupes, has appeared often on screen, both large and small. She's co-creator, with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello, of Comedy Central's hit show Strangers with Candy and is half of the Obie-winning "Talent Family" playwright team (with her brother, David). She has recently published a guide to entertaining entitled I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence. Amy lives in Manhattan with her imaginary boyfriend, Ricky, and her pet rabbit, Dusty.
