The University of Alberta’s Festival of Ideas finishes off with Edmonton’s first chance to meet master humorist David Sedaris. If you’re not familiar with his name, Sedaris is the author of several essay collections that have lined the bestseller racks of bookstores for more than a decade.

Some of his titles include When You Are Engulfed In Flames, Naked, and Dress Your Family In Corduroy And Denim.

His latest work, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, is a collection of fables where animals reflect the everyday foibles of modern adults.

Sedaris will be on hand to sign books one hour before his set starts.
