Author Event w/ David Sedaris, Author of Calypso

Parnassus Books is thrilled to be hosting David Sedaris for his new book, Calypso. If you would like to attend, please read this event information carefully and in its entirety, as it contains very important info regarding event details. 

Seating Tickets: The first 100 tickets for this event will reserve a seat in the store for the reading. Additionally, each ticket guarantees a spot in the signing line after the reading.

Standing Room Tickets: Once the first 100 tickets have been purchased, the next 100 tickets are standing room only. Additionally, each ticket guarantees a spot in the signing line after the reading.

Signing line only: Once we reach capacity in the store, we will begin forming a signing line outside of the store.

A note about seating: Because of our layout and capacity limitations, we can only accommodate 200 people inside the store. We also will not be able to provide chairs for every attendee, and not all parts of the store will have full visibility. However, David Sedaris will be here until EVERYONE in line has a chance to meet him and get a book signed.

Signing line information: Your ticket number will assign you to a signing line group. Attendees will be invited to join the signing line based on their ticket number. Each ticket admits one person.

Additional information: David Sedaris will stay and sign for every attendee. For context, Parnassus Books’ last event with the author went until 1:30am. There are plenty of great restaurants in our plaza. We encourage you to patronize fellow businesses while you wait for your signing line group to be called.

There is to be no photography, recording, or video for the entire evening, reading or signing.

Please do not ask the author to sign books written by other people.
