Didn't see anything on this, so thought I'd post:

Renowned author David Sedaris is coming to town! On Friday, June 5th, at 7 pm he'll be in German Village's Book Loft to read some from his latest collection of essays, "When You Are Engulfed in Flames".

Book Loft's website mentions his appearance, as well as a special that if one pre-orders the paperback version of his latest collection, you can get a "priority pass" whatever that means.

Do they mean "on the street in front of the bookloft"? Cuz I'm trying to imagine a single room in the book loft where more than six people could comfortably stand at the same time. And we're talking about a guy who could probably fill Mershon for a talk. Do not get.

I was on vacation out west a few years ago and I found out that Sedaris was speaking at a theater in town. I went over to see if tickets were available and how much they were, and it was sold out. Sold out of paid tickets for a 600 seat theater.

Either he is much more popular out west, or good luck Book Loft!
