One of America's most popular humor writers, David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as the essay collections Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and most recently, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls—each of which was an immediate bestseller. A frequent guest on NPR's This American Life, Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

Patrons will have the opportunity to get books signed by Sedaris before and after the event. Q&A to follow Sedaris's reading.

"He's smart, he's caustic, he's mordant, and, somehow, he's . . . well, nice." —Bill Richardson, Toronto Globe and Mail

"Sedaris's droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world's crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today." —Chicago Tribune

"Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what's funny." —San Francisco Chronicle
