Today the Dallas Museum of Art announced return of David Sedaris to Dallas as part of the DMA’s Arts & Letters Live Series. The DMA, in partnership with the AT&T Performing Arts Center and KERA, will present an evening with David Sedaris on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Winspear Opera House.
This will be Sedaris’s sixth consecutive year with the DMA Arts & Letters Live series to read new and unpublished material. Presale tickets are available today through August 12, 2014 for DMA Partners, AT&T Performing Arts Center Center Circle Members, and KERA Members.
Sedaris’s recent book of essays, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls (now available in paperback), takes his readers on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler’s experiences.
Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist’s shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten. The audio version of Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls is also a 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album.
Tickets go on sale to the public on August 12, 2014 and range from $25-$65 plus handling fees. To purchase tickets, please visit attpac.org or call 214-880-0202.
