Reading promises a few laughs to make the season bright

Seven women from the UWindsor faculty, alumni and broader community will read from David Sedaris’ seasonal masterpiece Santaland Diaries Friday in support of the Windsor Youth Centre.

“This is a very adult story,” says University photographer Tory James, who organizes the annual benefit event, “and quite possibly the funniest 33 pages ever written in English.”

The staged reading will start at 7:30 p.m. December 7 at Lefty’s Underground, 89 University Avenue West. The doors open at 6 p.m.; admission is by donation.

The Windsor Youth Centre is a drop-in centre serving homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 20.
