David Sedaris - 'Theft By Finding' (Admission Tickets Sold Out/Unlimited Signing line tickets available)

Admission tickets to David's program have sold out! We are at capacity.  There are unlimited signing-line-only tickets available with QRB purchase of Theft by Finding.  Your friends can join you in the signing line.  You WILL meet David and get your books signed.


It's always a true event when David Sedaris returns to Quail Ridge.  We welcome him to our new location on Friday, June 30, at 7 pm with Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002).  The book goes on sale May 30th but don't wait until then to order it.  If you know David (and you must if you're looking at  this event), you know it's going to be a memorable evening.  David will be doing a program, taking questions from the audience, and then will commence to signing - and if you've ever met David at a signing table, that's an experience in itself. 

David is very accommodating but there is one very strict rule: no photography or videotaping, both during the program and the signing line.  

Ticketed event: We are sold out of admission tickets to the program but signing-line tickets are still available!

Note to those with admission tickets: these are for admission to the program. They do not guarantee a seat.  Those with admission tickets should be here by 6:30 pm.   At approximately 6:45, we will open up any open spaces to those waiting outside. 

There is no limit to the number of tickets for the after-program line to meet David and have your book signed. Our admission tickets are all spoken for,  but you may still purchase a book and get a signing-line-only ticket. You WILL meet David and interact with him at the signing table.  If you have a signing-line-only ticket, friends can accompany you in the line. 


For online orders through our website: all our Admission tickets are claimed.

We will email anyone who would get a signing-line-only ticket. If you get your online order receipt email and do not get a follow-up email from us saying you didn't get admission tickets, you're in.  You don't have to request a separate confirmation email. 

Not able to attend the event? We can get a book signed for you by David and mail it to you.  (Mailing fee would apply.)


Thank you for joining David in supporting independently-owned bookstores.

David always recommends a book at his events - think of it as a 'private' book club with David.  His pick for this visit is The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy (see below).
