That cheese-ball slinging, peculiar craft stitchin', hot fruit slurpin' superstar is coming to Dallas and tickets are officially on sale as of now.
Whether you adore her for her role as the underbite that launched a thousand detentions in Strangers With Candy or you pore over her freaky craft books (Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People and I Like You), you sense that there's something magical about that crazy woman. It's the kind of energy that we all want in our lives, and as of today you can scoot a little closer to it when you buy a ticket for her April 19 speaking engagement at the Kessler. Prices range from $25 for standing room only, to $500 VIP packages. Amy doesn't care where you sit, just as long as you like talking about squirrels, cheese and how to make a stuffed snake out of dryer lint.
Books will be available for purchase at the event, which is co-sponsored by Half Price Books and WordSpace.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
