“The Sedaris book signing went until 2:15 am…

Then his hotel caught on fire this morning…

And he missed his flight …

So Mitchell from the DMA’s Museum Store is driving him to Austin.”

Surely this experience gives Dallas a shot at anecdotal greatness in the next David Sedaris bestseller. Sedaris was in town for a blockbuster appearance in the Dallas Museum of Art’s Arts & Letters Live season. I am so proud of my city for turning his time here into an adventure, especially right before he hits Austin.

A special thank you to the BlackBerry owned by Elysa Nelson, PR Specialist at the Dallas Museum of Art, for telling stories on the storyteller. Another big thank you to David Sedaris for his spontaneous $500 gift toward KERA’s spring pledge drive and for sounding exactly like Billie Holliday when he feels like it.
