While Amy is in town (Atlanta) to accept her Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance award for best cookbook of 2007 (for I Like You), she’ll be doing a presentation and book signing in nearby Decatur. Russ from Wordsmiths Books writes:
At Wordsmiths Books, we like you. No, really, we do. Thatâ€™s why we are nearly speechless with excitement to announce the newest addition to our stellar September lineup of authors:
Wordsmiths Books presents Actress, Comedian, Author, Icon: Amy Sedaris
At the Decatur Recreation Center
231 Sycamore St, Decatur GA
September 28th, 7:30 PM
Amy Sedaris: comedic icon, hilarious wit, half of the (in)famous Talent Family. Her turn as Jerri Blank on Comedy Centralâ€™s cult favorite series-turned-film â€œStrangers With Candyâ€ is impossibly memorable, as is her first book, â€œWigfieldâ€, a tongue-in-cheek razor-sharp spoof of small-town life, co-written with her â€œCandyâ€ co-starts Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert. Her latest book, the beloved â€œI Like Youâ€, is more than a cook-book, itâ€™s Amyâ€™s own guide to entertaining. Equal parts informatively funny and jaw-droppingly offensive in the best way possible, I Like You is the only book on entertaining youâ€™ll ever needâ€¦or want.
Come celebrate â€œI Like Youâ€ winning SIBAâ€™s â€œBest Cookbook of 2007â€ award on this awesome night with Amy Sedaris.
Doors open at 6pm SHARP, Amyâ€™s presentation begins at 7:30, with book signing to follow. Seating is limited. Numbered tickets will be distributed on a chronological (first-come, first-serve) basis to organize the autographing aspect of the event. No tickets will be distributed before doors open.
A thought for those attending: though this event, like all our events, is free and open to the public, we ask that you consider purchasing a book at the event. This helps enable us to continue to bring you the authors you love, and enables the author to continue writing while still being able to buy groceries. If youâ€™ve seen Amyâ€™s book, you know she buys a lot of groceries.
