Spend Nov. 18 with Neil Gaiman — then spend Nov. 19 with David Sedaris

Tickets are going fast for two of the fall's biggest events (for readers): Neil Gaiman and David Sedaris, both at Benaroya Hall, one day apart. Gaiman is up on November 18. He promises that his program will “amaze, befuddle and generally delight." Sedaris takes the stage on November 19, reading from published works (Calypso, among others) and works-in-progress.

Returning sponsor Northwest Associated Arts is here this week to make sure you have a chance to reserve seats before they're gone. And, of course, tickets for both events are going fast. Gaiman is almost universally beloved, and his scope is huge, so he draws readers from across genres. Sedaris is a Seattle favorite, and he returns regularly to test new material against our, ahem, discerning ears.

Get more information about both events on our sponsor feature, then buy tickets for both. It's a rare chance to be surprised and delighted, in two completely different ways, two nights in a row.
