And Evening with David Sedaris

Thursday, December 16, 2010
Hey remember that time that I went to the David Sedaris book signing at my local bookstore (If not click here)? Well, I braved the freezing temperatures to listen to David Sedaris's book chat over the PDA system outside of the bookstore, and I stood in line for over six hours, but gosh darn it, I got my books signed.

The book signing started at 6:30pm and there were so many people, that many with advanced tickets (like me) had to sit out in the cold. Luckily, the book store did have a cafe to warm up in and they were nice enough to provide free coffee and hot cocoa refills. David seemed very genuine and spent the same amount of time with each person. He asked everyone in line if they had a joke to share and he would share a few with each individual. By the time I got up to the front of the line (about 12:30pm on a work-night), I was so cold, tired, and nervous that my mouth was even shaking and I couldn't get a word out! But he was nice enough to share a few jokes with me. I bet the people at the end of the line didn't get through until after 1am. There was no way those people were going to make it to the midnight showings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I.

Been to any good book signings lately? Let me know in the comments below.
