Neil Gaiman and David Sedaris back to back, Nov. 18 and 19

Two of the fall's biggest events (for readers) are coming up, and seats are going fast. On November 18, Neil Gaiman takes the stage with a program he promises will “amaze, befuddle and generally delight." On November 19, it's David Sedaris' turn, 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 — both are more than half sold out already. 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 on our sponsor feature page, 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.

Sponsors like Northwest Associated Arts make the Seattle Review of Books possible. We're almost sold out through 2018 — there are only three slots remaining!
