Amy Sedaris – actress, comedian, author, and … crafter?

Sedaris, who studied and performed with Chicago’s Second City and appeared in film, television and stage productions, demonstrates that crafting is a “pleasurable and constructive leisure activity” in her new tongue-in-cheek book, Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People. Anyone with some spare time can undertake simple, popular craft projects like crab-claw roach clips, tinfoil balls and crepe-paper moccasins.

The funny lady will be appearing at the Atlanta History Center on Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets, which include an autographed copy of Simple Times, are $35 for members and $40 for nonmembers.
