Join David Alley on Monday, October 14 in the Lawson McGhee Library meeting room for a discussion of Calypso by David Sedaris.
David Sedaris is back with another essay collection. This time around, he has purchased a beach house, called Sea Section. From there he details concerns about his own health with a hilarious story about wanting to keep a noncancerous tumor. Mixed in are stories about the health of his aging father and the repercussions of his sister's suicide. With Calypso, Sedaris is once again a master at providing insightful observations about himself, his family, and the world around him.
