While attending Moogfest in Asheville last weekend, I happened upon Malaprop's Bookstore... and what to my wandering eyes should appear? But an advertisement to see Amy Sedaris, November 12th, promoting her latest book, Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People. A crafty comedienne who dazzled us on Strangers with Candy AND is native to North Carolina -- coming to Asheville!? -- Say no more. I'm sooooo there.
Here are more details via Malaprop's event site: America's most delightfully unconventional hostess and the bestselling author of I Like You delivers a new book that will forever change the world of crafting: Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People. Malaprop's is psyched to announce Amy Sedaris' new book and her return to Asheville!
The multi-talented Sedaris is well-known for her work as an actress (Comedy Central's Strangers with Candy, Rescue Me, Sex and the City, Shrek Forever and the upcoming Ass Backwards), her collaboration with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello on the book, Wigfield, and her frequent appearances on David Letterman. And yes, she is also David Sedaris' sister.
Tickets to the event are $33 plus tax and include a hardcover copy of Simple Times ($27.99) plus a $5 seat reservation. Amy will entertain then meet each of you as she signs your copy of Simple Times.
