A 13-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris' contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists' recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
Harris is known as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. Admired through her career for her talent as an artist and song connoisseur, Harris shook up country radio in the 1970s, and established herself as the premiere songwriter of a generation selling more than 15 million records and garnering 13 Grammy Awards (this year she and Rodney Crowell won the Grammy for "Best Americana album"), three CMA Awards, and two Americana Awards.
David Sedaris's first bestseller, Me Talk Pretty One Day, a book of essays, signaled the arrival of a new and inventive voice in non-fiction. Sedaris is a humorist, a master of satire, and a wry observer of the human condition. With wit and care, sometimes in print, or as a regular contributor to NPR's, This American Life, Sedaris peels back the outer layer of humanity and reveals the absurdity underneath. Sedaris has written many bestsellers, including Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. David's laughter filled evening will also feature a question and answer period. Book signing and meet & greet to follow show.
Singer, songwriter, and actor, Paul Anka became famous in the late 1950s, 60s, and 70s with hit songs like "Diana," "Lonely Boy," and "Put Your Head on My Shoulder." In addition to his illustrious singing career, Anka wrote the theme music for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Tom Jones' "She's a Lady," the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra's signature song "My Way," and Michael Jackson's posthumous hit "This Is It." Anka is the only artist in history to have a record on Billboard's Top 50 chart for seven consecutive decades, and has cemented his places as one of the most prolific and versatile singer/songwriters of any generation.
