Freedom, Sedarises

Posted on Wed, Oct 18, 2006 at 4:00 AM

It was an interesting Tuesday evening at the Cannon Center. In one part, Stevie Wonder received the National Civil Rights Museum’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the Freedom Awards ceremony. In another, humorist David Sedaris read several of his essays and talked about possibly moving to Japan to quit smoking. Or try to, for the first time in his life.

And, yes, we know that’s a picture of Amy Sedaris, David's sister. David declined to tell any “Amy stories” — saying now that she was known it felt like gossip — so to the audience member who asked, we hope this offers some solace. Oh, and she has a new book out, so you can read about her yourself.
