On August 6, storyteller David Sedaris is returning to Halifax for a one-night reading event, "An Evening With David Sedaris."

With the release of his latest book Calypso—yet another Sedaris entry on the The New York Times Bestseller List—Sedaris is touring once again. Calypso is earning praise as Sedaris' most deeply personal and darkly hilarious book yet, following him as he talks about morality and middle age.

Sedaris was last in Halifax nearly a decade ago, doing a reading at the Darmouth Chapters in November, 2010. The crowd was so big, and so into Sedaris, that he signed books afterwards for five hours and 45 minutes.

This time around, the venue is the much larger Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, but it's still likely to sell out when tickets go on sale Friday, May 10, at noon. Prices range from $41.50 to $51.50, and will be available through the Cohn box office. For a taste of Calypso, here's an excerpt from the audiobook version:
