Author Spotlight: David Sedaris

For many, it has become a holiday tradition to gather around whatever audio output device everyone now uses and listen to writer and humorist David Sedaris read the essay that made him famous: SantaLand Diaries. First read by Sedaris on NPR in 1992, SantaLand Diaries recalls Sedaris’ experiences the two years he was employed by Macy’s as a Christmas elf. With grim humor and dead-on observations, SantaLand Diaries set Sedaris on a trajectory of becoming one of America’s foremost humor writers.
