The Best of Me by David Sedaris
For years, David Sedaris has been carving out a unique literary space, virtually creating his own genre. Now, for the first time collected in one volume, the author brings us his funniest and most memorable work.
In these stories, Sedaris shops for rare taxidermy, hitchhikes with a lady quadriplegic, and spits a lozenge into a fellow traveler’s lap. He drowns a mouse in a bucket, struggles to say “give it to me” in five languages, and hand-feeds a carnivorous bird.
Full of joy, generosity, and the incisive humor that has led David Sedaris to be called “the funniest man alive” (Time Out New York), The Best of Me spans a career spent watching and learning and laughing—quite often at himself—and invites readers deep into the world of one of the most brilliant and original writers of our time.
All are welcome! Registration is encouraged!
Discussion will be outside, weather permitting.
Join us for a fun afternoon listening to those dark stories we reserve for the most spooky time of the year.
We’ll read the stories and give away the candy.
You get to wear a costume if you’d like or simply come and listen, while having a different kind of afternoon.
About our Storytime for Adults: This program will present a selection of short stories read by the library staff, during an hour program to be conducted periodically in our location. The selection for the reading will come from items available in our collection. The format will be set to be composed of 1 to 3 short stories of different nature and authors.
After each story, participants will be encouraged to contribute their thoughts and opinions on what it has been read if they will desire to do so. Discussion of stories will be held in a respectful environment to those participating.
