From The Citizen: Coming to Auburn, advice columnist Amy Dickinson talks local show, new memoir and more

As Amy Dickinson’s new memoir says, strangers tend to tell her things. Wednesday, an Auburn audience will be able to hear her tell them a few things of her own.

The nationally syndicated author of the Ask Amy advice column and frequent guest on NPR’s “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” game show will come to Auburn Public Theater Wednesday, July 26. “An Evening With Amy Dickinson” will see her share a story from the March-released memoir, “Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Coming Home.” The evening will also feature music by duo Nate & Kate, audience trivia games modeled after “Wait Wait,” two stories from Dickinson that have yet to be published anywhere, and a Q&A session.

In a phone interview Wednesday from the village of Freeville — where Dickinson was born and returned to reside in 2007 — she said she performed a similar show at Ithaca’s Hangar Theatre as a “thank you” to her hometown audience. She added that some of the show’s attendees compared it to Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion.”
