Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People BUY NOW
Spangenberg Theatre, Gunn High School, 780 Arastradero Rd., Palo Alto
Introduction by Beth Lisick
America's most delightfully unconventional hostess and the bestselling author of I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence delivers a new book that will forever change the world of crafting. According to Sedaris, it's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. In her new book, SIMPLE TIMES, she sets the record straight. Demonstrating that crafting is one of life's more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters.
Sedaris is a comedienne, playwright and actress. In the early 90s, Sedaris performed in the legendary Chicago comedy troupes Second City and Annoyance Theatre. Sedaris’ best-known character is Jerri Blank, a middle-aged, former prostitute-turned-high-school student, featured on the cult series (and then movie) Strangers with Candy. Under the name “The Talent Family,” she and her brother David Sedaris have written and produced several envelope-pushing plays including Stitches and One Woman Shoe.
Happy New Year 2019!
