Join best-selling author and NPR contributor David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories, an audience Q&A, and a book signing. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr. Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. David Sedaris returns to the road following the release of his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious collection,Calypso, published in May 2018. Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny — it’s a book that can make you laugh ’til you snort, the way only family can. To see him read his own work on stage allows his autobiographical narrative to reveal a uniquely personal narrative that will keep you laughing throughout the evening. Don’t miss this event!

Mark S. Roberts is a retired United States Air Force security policeman and a Gulf War veteran. He holds a bachelors degree in Criminal Justice and is a first time author. Mark resides in Green Bay, Wisconsin with his wife Lori, also a USAF veteran.

The Clio Project: A Military Time Travel Story

Technical Sergeant Scott Rees figures this will be just another hot August day on base for him and his team of United States Air Force security policemen. Little do they know they are about to become subjects in a top-secret time travel experiment, forcing them into a fight for their lives in the middle of the American Civil War. Major General Richard Lucas and Chief Master Sergeant Joe Black want more time to test the Clio time machine before putting it into use, but their request falls on deaf ears as impatient government officials push forward. The incompetence of a key technician and a power grab by his senator uncle have thrown the project into chaos, leaving the security policemen caught in the middle. Now Rees and his team face a double-barreled race against time to escape the past and almost certain death.
