Bestselling author and humorist David Sedaris to speak at Whitman in November

David Sedaris

David Sedaris will be on the Whitman College campus later this year for an evening of readings and recollections featuring all-new, unpublished work.

Named "one of America's most prickly and most delicious, young comic talents" by "The Washington Post," Sedaris is the best-selling author of "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim," "When You Are Engulfed in Flames" and "Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk." He recently celebrated another number 1 "New York Times" bestseller with his book "Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls," copies of which will be available for purchase at the Whitman College Bookstore.

David Sedaris’ original radio pieces can often be heard on NPR’s “This American Life,” while his essays and non-fiction appear regularly in “The New Yorker” and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.”

Sedaris’ talk will take place on Nov. 19 at Cordiner Hall on the Whitman College campus. The talk will be followed by a question and answer session and a booksigning hosted by the Whitman College bookstore.

This event is presented and sponsored by the Walla Walla Center for the Arts, Northwest Public Radio, Main Street Studios, Barnes & Noble and Tangent Media. Tickets can be purchased online with Ticketfly or by calling 509-520-6451.
