Author and comedian David Sedaris will be speaking at the Academy of Music Theatre this spring.

Sedaris — known for crafting essays and short stories and “considered a master of satire and one of today’s most observant writers addressing the human condition” — will appear there at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 16. He’ll speak for an hour, followed by a Q&A session and post-show book signing in the historic theater’s lobby.

Sedaris’ books include “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim,” “When You Are Engulfed in Flames,” “Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls,” and “Theft by Finding: Diaries (1977-2002).”

His latest collection of essays, 2018’s “Calypso,” is a New York Times bestseller and was named Washington Post’s Best Book of the Year, according to a news release.
