NHM Virtual Book Club Features David Sedaris and Holidays on Ice, Dec. 16

December 15, 2021

CHICAGO – The National Hellenic Museum (NHM) Virtual Book Club on Thursday, December 16, presents a discussion of Greek-American author David Sedaris’ Holidays on Ice.

The essay collection is new again with six more pieces, including a never before published story along with favorites such as the diaries of a Macy’s elf and the history of two very competitive families.

About the author:

Sedaris lives in Paris. Raised in North Carolina, he has worked as a housecleaner and most famously, as a part-time elf for Macy’s. Several of his plays have been produced, and he is a regular contributor to Esquire and Public Radio International’s This American Life.

More about NHM Virtual Book Club:

Facilitated by NHM Resident Scholar Dr. Katherine Kelaidis and the Manager of Programs & Events Cairo Dye, each month the NHM Book Club chooses a book that is either inspired by the Hellenic legacy or by a Greek-American author (and sometimes both). Then, the club gathers to discuss the book on Zoom.

Book Club is free to join and meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7-8 PM CST.
