David Sedaris at Boswell
Boswell is excited to announce a reading and signing with David Sedaris, the writer NPR calls, the best American humorist writing today, visiting on his paperback publication tour for Calypso, his first book of essays in five years.

The reading portion of Sedaris's event is ticketed. Tickets cost $17.99, plus taxes and fees, and include admission and a paperback copy of Calypso. The link to this ticket site is sedaris19mke.bpt.me. There is a limit of two tickets per order and tickets are non-transferable. Attendees will need ID to check into the event, and at least one ticketholders name must match the name of the person who purchases the tickets for each order. Boswell will close to the general public during the event.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 3 at Noon CT. We expect these tickets to sell out very quickly.

Please Note: After Sedariss talk (around 8:30 pm), Boswell will open again to the public for the signing portion of Sedariss event, and anyone who would like to meet Sedaris, get a book signed, or just say hi is welcome to do so free of charge. We will stay open as long as it takes to get through the signing line.

Already have a copy of Calypso? Dont forget that a book from David Sedaris makes a great gift for Fathers Day, graduation, back-to-school, or, with only 203 days remaining after Mr. Sedariss visit, Christmas.

If you've ever laughed your way through David Sedaris's cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you're getting with Calypso. You'd be wrong. This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumor joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris's darkest and warmest book yet - and it just might be his very best.
